You should ask your doctors exactly what was removed. More specifically whether your ovaries were removed or not. After a hysterectomy, you are generally booked off work for 6 weeks. This does not mean that you should stay in bed for this time. However, you should take things easy, so no heavy lifting, stretching, or anything that puts strain on your tummy muscles. You should also not have sex till after the 6 week check-up.
It is common to have brusing after an operation. This usually resolves within 1-2 weeks.
