This will depend on how your operation is been performed. If the womb is normal sided or if it is not too large, your operation should be done by keyhole (total laparoscopic hysterectomy). If successful, you should be able to go home within 24-48 hrs. Scarring from previous surgery is not usually a contra-indication to doing your operation by keyhole. In experienced hands, separating scar tissues in your abdomen (adhesiolyis) is much more easily performed by laparoscopy rather than by laparotomy (open operation). In fact, doing your hysterectomy by laparotomy, will increase the risk of further scarring inside your tummy that can cause pelvic and abdominal pain in the future. Again, when hysterectomy is done successfully by keyhole, recovery is quicker and most women are able to drive after 2 weeks and return back to work after 4 weeks.
