Tips for a Speedy Recovery from Endometrial Ablation

If you are about to undergo endometrial ablation then you should expect to take about a week off to rest and recover. During this time there are a few simple things you can do to help with the healing process.

What Can Help With Recovery?


You can take a few simple steps to ensure that you recover as quickly as possible from endometrial ablation. Following these tips should also give you the best chances of an easy recovery by reducing the risk of complications.

  • Eat well: a healthy, balanced diet is essential for your health. Eating well before and after the procedure will give your body the nutrition it needs to heal. It’s also important to ensure you are drinking plenty of fluids to keep yourself fully hydrated.
  • Don’t smoke: cigarette smoke can slow down the healing process, so it is important to avoid it when you are recovering from a procedure like endometrial ablation. Your doctor can provide advice on stopping smoking if necessary. Giving up while you are healing could even help you to quit permanently, which would be great for your health.
  • Be positive: attitude has a big impact on your health, so it is important to try to stay as relaxed and positive as you can after the procedure. Take plenty of time to rest, invite a friend round to keep you company, or find something interesting to read, watch or do during your recovery.

What Could Slow Down Your Recovery?


Although there are things you can do to help with recovery, everyone reacts differently to endometrial ablation. Some people naturally heal faster than others and there are some factors that could slow down your recovery:

  • Any other health problems such as diabetes
  • Being overweight or not having an active lifestyle
  • If there are any complications with the procedure

Although you might not be able to do anything about these factors before the procedure, it can help to know what to expect during recovery. It may take you a little longer to heal, so it is even more important to look after yourself and to do what you can to speed up your recovery.
