Our expert says:
It is correct that you will have to do very little for the first two weeks. This means not picking up anything more than 2-3 kg. Preferably you should have someone at home to help you when you come out of hospital. You should not gain weight after a hysterectomy where your ovaries are retained.
There is nothing you need do to prepare. Arnica is not a good idea as it can cause increased bleeding, which you don't want at the time of the operation. There is a good website www.hystersisters.com which will give you more advice.
