Can you suggest anything I could do to to help my recovery from a hysterectomy I am scheduled for June 4.
Person's Age: 54
Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Can you tell me what type of hysterectomy are you having - Abdominal, Laparoscopic, or Robotic?
Also, what is your height and weight?
Why are you having a hysterectomy?
okay - well the best thing you can do is actually try to get healthy
drink plenty of water
But what REALLY helps is take in plenty of protein
Protein will allow you to heal better and faster
Protein is the building blocks of healing and if you can have he protein in your body PRIOR to surgery this is so much better
a robotic surgery also will be benign on your body
so you should do very well
I hope this helps
What foods are high in protein?
meats such as chicken, and portk
Also dairy products such as cottage cheese
also protein shakes
You can get protein powder from health food stores
i walk 2 miles daily. What other exercises and frequency would you suggest.?
that is great =
I would recommend a bit more rigorous exercise though
but protein intake and exercise should help tremendously and then you should do just fine in this robotic surgery
Usually exercise such as having a good heart rate for 45 to 60 minutes per day will help
I hope the surgery goes well
