Start walking after surgery. Begin your everyday activities as soon as you feel up to it. Do NOT jog, do sit-ups, or play sports until you have checked with your doctor.
Move around the house, shower, and use the stairs at home during the first week. If it hurts when you do something, stop doing that activity.
Ask your doctor about driving. You may be able to drive after 2 or 3 days if you are not taking narcotic pain drugs.
You may lift 10 pounds (about the weight of a gallon of milk) or less. Do NOT do any heavy lifting or straining for the first 3 weeks. You may be able to go back to a desk job within a couple of weeks. But, you may still get tired more easily at this time.
Do NOT put anything into your vagina for the first 8 - 12 weeks. This includes douching and tampons.
Do NOT have sexual intercourse for at least 12 weeks, and only after your doctor says it is okay. Resuming intercourse sooner than that could lead to complications.
