Move Walk Slowly But Keep Moving

Move and walk slowly, but keep moving – Hysterectomy Recovery Tip

Right after your hysterectomy you will likely want to rest. And resting is a good idea!  But, staying still too long can lead to serious, and even life-threatening complications. As you are resting, it is important to get up and move regularly. Your body heals while it is resting but your body also needs to regain strength.

As your activity level is restricted during the first few weeks, regularly take a walk around your house. As you get up to go to the bathroom, take a few laps around your house. Refresh your water. Take a stroll to the mailbox if its near your house. Know that slowly moving is a good thing for your swollen, sore body.

There are several benefits to walking soon after your hysterectomy.  Walking can help treat constipation. Walking can also rid your body of gas that is trapped in your body after laparoscopic surgery.

Your stamina will increase along with your walking as you add slow activity to your hysterectomy recovery.

Of course, to help your tender tummy, we suggest an abdominal binder or a pocket abdominal binder (with ice packs) to help you to feel more comfortable as you move. Find both in the Hysterectomy Store.

Stay on top of pain

Stay on top of pain with your prescribed medications – Hysterectomy Recovery Tip

As you head home, your doctor or hospital nurse will discuss pain management with you. You may be given a prescription or you may be encouraged to take over the counter Tylenol or ibuprofen.  Either way, ask your doctor about any questions you have about your pain.

Keep track of your dosages and the time with a notepad near your bedside. As you rest those first few days/weeks of surgery, it’s easy to be confused. By keeping track you will not forget a dosage or take too many. Eeks!

But, of course, don’t let your pain get away from you. Take your medicines on schedule. If you ignore your pill schedule, you will find that it is hard to “stay ahead of the pain”.

Customers tell us the use of ice packs will often minimize their need for pain medicines. We know from personal experiences, our pocket abdominal binder with ice packs helps a great deal to provide gentle compression along with cold packs.

Ice on your incision will be something that will help your incision to heal faster and will help you to minimize your overall pain level.

Feel better soon!
