Has any other ladies out there had a hysterectomy? I had one 7 weeks ago and I still do not feel completely better.

I myself have not had a hysterectomy, but i found some information for you on this website: http://www.webmd.com/hw/womens_conditions/aa69025.asp this seems to be very informative, and the information below this explains a little bit about recovery time. Take a look at this site, maybe it can help. Complete recovery usually takes 4 to 8 weeks. You will gradually be able to increase your activities. During the first 2 to 3 weeks it is important to get plenty of rest. You may then begin to do light chores and some driving, and you may even be able to return to work if your job isn't too physically demanding.
