Hi Jenny

Welcome to the site, I hope you enjoy it here, the people are very supportive and friendly. Do you also have an Anxiety Disorder???? Just wondering because you don't mention whether you do or not.

Yes it is normal to hurt when you cough or sneeze after a hysterectomy. If you are sneezing and coughing quite a bit, hold a pillow over your abdomen, it will hurt less. Have a good night and it's nice to meet you.

Hi shebig, Thank you for your warm welcome and response. I do have an Anxiety Disorder. I have been depressed for the past 8 months, I've been fighting it. Helps me to go for a walk or a drive.  
 
I have been reading alot of posts and found the people here are very friendly and supportive :-)

Hi Jenny
 
Welcome to HW were so happy you have joined us here. As you can see you will find pleanty of supportive friends here.
 
I had a hysterectomy 27 years ago and to the best of my memory...which is not much...ha ha ha
I think it took me about 2 months to get back close to normal as far as the pain went. I did still have problems lifting some things even then. Please remember it take longer for us to heal on the inside then it does on the outside. Hope your feeling better soon and get pleanty of rest.

I haven't had a hysterectomy, but they had to remove my right folopian tube because of an eptopic preganacy that burst and it took me the full 8wks to recover and even about 6 mo later I was working out lifting and felt a pull where my tube use to be. I was fine of course but I definatly felt it. Hope this all puts your mind at rest sounds like after 4 wks your out of the danger zone so just take it easy and you'll be just fine.

You will be ok. I would not recommend picking them up, but you should be ok. You will probably be in enought pain that you will not want to travel far, but as long as it hasn't expanded into your intestine, which is sounds like it has not, you should be fine to do christmas.
