Below are instructions for post-operative home care following major surgery, such as for a hysterectomy or other major abdominal surgery.
Your recovery depends on several factors: age, medical condition, general level of fitness and severity of your operation.
LISTEN TO YOUR BODY TALK! If it says very tired, give it a rest. It’s not surprising to have days when you feel “crummy” when you had felt much better the day before.
Your recovery will have peaks and valleys while gradually improving.
These are some general guidelines. If they differ from what has been explained in person, please follow oral instructions.
