On the mend
Tuesday, May 07, 2013
I met with my surgeon and got a great report. My outside stitches are gone. I have 2 more weeks of restricted exercise. I will adhere to her recommendations. May 21st is my first day of freedom!
I plan to write up my robotic hysterectomy experience on the DaVinci pages. It may help someone who is unsure about the procedure. I was operated upon at 7:30 am and went to the recovery room at 11 am. I got to my hospital room by 5:30 pm and walked in the hallway at 9 pm. I did the full walk around the hospital building at 5:30 am and went home at noon the next day.
I could not lift anything more than 10 pounds for 6 weeks. I was able to help my husband and also get meals. My cleaning specialist did more cleaning during my recovery.
