Physio after gynaecological surgery

Post-surgery rehabilitation

Exercises to help you get back to normal after a gynaecological surgical procedure

About

Even though gynaecological surgery affects you internally rather than externally, physiotherapy can help speed up your recovery and reduce the chance of long-term side effects. Depending on the type of surgery you've had, you'll be assessed by one of our physiotherapists. If they think you could benefit from physio, they'll create a treatment plan for you. This usually involves a series of simple exercises that focus on strengthening the pelvic floor and stomach muscles, and restoring mobility to that area. Your physiotherapist will explain each exercise in detail and tell you when and how often to do them. To give yourself the best chance of a full recovery, try to do the exercises as instructed. And let your consultant or physiotherapist know if you experience any pain or if the exercises don't feel right. Your physiotherapist might want to carry on seeing you as outpatient.
