I have just been diagnosed with pre cancer of womb lining so having a hysterectomy soon. My question is, How soon afteer surgery can I fly? I have a holiday booked 24th of September for 5 days and the flight is 2 1/2 hours. U.K. to Portugal. Many thanks
Welcome to ehealthforum,
You would require about 6-8 weeks to allow for complete healing after hysterectomy along with following other precautions as instructed by your treating gynecologist. If your medical condition is stable, your doctor/gynecologist would allow you for travel. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring with your treating gynecologist after the surgery.
Had Hysterectomy a week ago, and I am following the doctors orders, the only issue I have is the burning searing pain located on my lower right abdomen. I had a complete removal of everything. I noticed this is a question asked my many patients could you please address this issue.
