When should I resume activity after Gynecological Laparoscopic Surgery?
After surgery it is common to feel exhausted for a day or two, particularly if general anesthesia has been used. If you have undergone laparoscopic gynecological surgery, you may feel tired of it longer. Taking a few short naps during the day or resting when you are tired may help.
While rest is important, walking around many times a day also is important, beginning on the day of surgery. It helps prevent problems including blood clots, pneumonia and gas pains. So soon as you feel confident doing them, you can resume your usual daily activities. Rolling and scaling the stairs are all right. Step up your level of operation as you are willing to.
Other tasks such as fitness, housework, physical sports, if you are willing and depending on the form of operation, can be resumed slowly. You can get detailed instructions from your surgeon.
