After a robotic myomectomy, you may stay in the hospital for one or more nights. Your treatment team will observe your condition while you're in the hospital, control your pain and make sure you're comfortable. You may also get medicine to prevent infection.

During your recovery, which typically lasts about two to three weeks, you'll need to avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting. Your doctor may encourage walking or other light exercise. Your doctor can tell you when it's all right to start driving a car, resuming sexual intercourse and trying to get pregnant.
