With Regards to the Da Vinci Robotic Hysterectomy: I had this procedure done and the nurses told me I could have gone home the same day I had the procedure because I was doing so well. I had very little pain and when I did get home the next day I was up doing laundry and I wasn't pushing myself. My last pain med was that Saturday night and I had the procedure on a Thursday. I also have a very active 2 year old that I have been doing lifting and playing with. I do highly recommend this procedure to anyone that it is offered to.
