  1. High sitting in bed position:
    • The best position, but avoid sitting in this position for extended periods after hospital discharge.
    • Because it increases pressure on the spinal curves of your lower back, thus making it prone to injury.
  2. Sleeping Wedge position:
    • If your upper body needs to be elevated when sleeping or resting, then this alternative might help. It can increase comfort and reduce lower back pressure.
  3. Tips:
    • Don't sit in one place for longer than 1-2 hours.
    • Spend more time lying down than sitting or standing. But the remaining time you should divide between walking and sitting.
    • Your body posture especially matters when sitting on the toilet so as to avoid constipation after hysterectomy.

You should know that going into this procedure will leave you with a hanging abdomen. However, it is safe to combine it with a tummy tuck.
