When can I return to work after my hysterectomy?
The length of time you need to fully recover after a hysterectomy before returning to work will depend on a variety of different factors, such as what sort of operation you had, what sort of work you do and how you travel to work.
Generally, those who have more physically demanding or stressful jobs will need longer to recover than those who are mostly sitting at a desk in a comfortable office environment. If you travel by public transport then you may want to consider finding alternative travel options or extending your recovery period. Finally, you will need longer if you have an abdominal hysterectomy than if you have a vaginal hysterectomy or laparascopic hysterectomy.
