How quickly you can go back to your normal activities after oophorectomy depends on your situation, including the reason for your surgery and how it was performed. Almost all women are able to return to full activity by six weeks after surgery. Women who undergo laparoscopic or robotic surgery may return to full activity sooner — as early as two weeks after surgery. Discuss exercise, driving, sexual restrictions and overall activity level with your surgeon.
