Physiotherapy After Women’s Health Related Surgery
We aim to see patients on the wards who are having gynaecological and continence surgery, to give advice on:
- Breathing exercises
- Circulatory exercises
- Pelvic floor exercises
- Return to normal function.
This advice is supported by leaflets given to the patients:
Please ask your nurse during your stay if you would like to speak to a physiotherapist.
Gynaecology Post Operative Group
Approximately six weeks after surgery we invite patients to attend a group session where they can discuss any specific problems they may be experiencing and will cover:
- Advice on pelvic floor and abdominal exercises and osteoporosis prevention
- General advice about getting back to normal activities/exercise and going back to work.
