Unpacking post hysterectomy: What you need to know to feel better

Unpacking post hysterectomy: What you need to know to feel better

Today is the second of a two part series focusing on hysterectomies.

Today we are focusing on our body after hysterectomy. Jessica graciously gives us the "smart best friend" version, as she experienced one herself at 42. 

These are the things she would tell you if you were sitting at a coffee shop talking about hysterectomies.

 As a physical therapist and pilates teacher, she acutely understands how the body works and thrives, and she provides the scoop on what to expect in our body after hysterectomy. 

We discuss:

  • Jessica’s reason for having a hysterectomy at age 42
  • The importance of being an advocate for yourself
  • The benefit of gently walking post hysterectomy
  • How to handle the constipation that comes along with a hysterectomy
  • Allowing yourself a mourning period when you do lose part of your female organs
  • Expectations, recommendations and more about exercising post hysterectomy
  • Resource to safely move in the ten weeks of rest post hysterectomy
