Ive posted before but on Jan 18th I had a full Abdominal Hysterectomy done due to a large (8pounds in weight) cyst coming from my left ovary. I am 45 and so as I had ovaries, cervix, appendix and part of the bowel removed I had to have a large incision from my belly button to my pubic bone.
It is now almost 4 weeks since the operation. I was in hospital for 5 days.
I started walking short distances after week 2 and on Sunday just gone I tried to go for a slightly longer walk but after only about 3 minutes I was in real pain and almost had to crawl home.
I feel like I have torn/ wrenched something in my left side (where the cyst was coming from.)
I haven't walked since and have been resting but I want to start again but don't want to overdo it?!
i thought I would be more advanced than I am at this stage. I was hoping to be back at work in 2 weeks and driving etc but maybe I'm being too optimistic?Anyone that's had the same op could you please let me know how long it took you to,recover to drive and work etc?
