Don’t Lift Anything Heavier than a Gallon of Milk

Allowing your tummy muscles to rest and heal is a challenging task. One of the instructions you are likely to be given as you are discharged from the hospital after hysterectomy.

Its easy to gauge your weight restrictions – do not lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk.

Don’t push a shopping cart.

Don’t vacuum your living room rug.

Allow yourself to heal!

Stairs? Go up backwards

Many doctors will tell you – do not use the stairs for the first few weeks of recovery.

It may be easy for some hysterectomy patients to avoid stairs. But for others, there may not be any options.

Instead, we suggest this alternative. Go up backwards.

Take your time and use the handrail. And go up, slowly, backwards.
