Hi,I am 47 years old and had a Total Laparoscopic assisted Vaginal hysterectomy
11 days ago. I have only just started to try a research my expected recovery as all I want to do is sleep, and when I am awake if I am on my feet too much or even sitting at my desk I feel like my vagina is coming out.I have been trying to find out what exercise I should be doing as I keep reading that I should have been given some by the hospital on discharge but that’s another story. I was given a leaflet on having a laparoscopy and when I pointed out to the nurses that this was not relevant she stated they had no leaflets on the procedure I had undergone. I even asked if there was a website they could give me and there was not!Also I was getting conflicting information from different nurses on recovery time.Anyway does anyone know if I should be doing pelvic floor type exercise, and after two weeks can I do short walks with my dog? And when can I drive? (Not that I feel like it)!Also I have a long term back condition and wanted to know that when I am able to turn on my tummy could I have my usual back massage from my physio which can be quite intense?Thanks Mary,
A. Thanks. My suggestion is for you to speak to your surgeon about these issues as he will have the best idea. Apologies for much delays in my response.
