Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy: Returning to Work

Everyone recovers at a different rate, so when you are ready to return to work will depend on the type of work you do, the number of hours you work and how you get to and from work.

You may experience more tiredness than normal after any operation, so your return to work should be like your return to physical activity, with a gradual increase in the hours and activities.

Some women are fit to work after two to three weeks but most will wait four to six weeks, after building up their levels of physical activity at home.

Returning to work can help your recovery by getting you back into your normal routine again.
