If it is a laparoscopic sterilisation, a week is usually okay. If it is a laparotomy, it will be 2-3 weeks. Thereafter you should avoid heavy lifting and heavy work for a while.

Surely your gynae can give you an idea of how long you will need to be booked off on sick leave?

Hi. Normally 2 to 3 days rest after laparoscopy TL.
