A major concern for women undergoing a hysterectomy is how long is the recovery. Google this and you will find a multitude of responses. Why? Because there are so many factors that impact your recovery. My recovery was quite quick and easy, which was not completely expected as it was an emergency surgery rather than a planned one. However, I am on the younger side of patients having this surgery, I was healthy going in to surgery, I eat well and exercise, so I definitely had several things going in my favour. Here is a video that discusses some of the factors that may impact your recovery time. The video is a little goofy in my opinion, but it does have some good information to consider. You may want to skip ahead to about the 40 second mark though.
