Vaginal hysterectomy

Published: 09/07/2010

This information will help you recover after a vaginal hysterectomy. You should read this information along with any other information you have been given about your choices and the operation itself. This information gives general advice based on women’s experiences and expert opinion. Every woman has different needs and recovers in different ways. Your own recovery will depend upon:

  • How fit and well you are before your operation
  • The reason you are having a hysterectomy
  • The exact type of hysterectomy that you have
  • How smoothly everything goes and whether there are any complications
