How Long Does It Take to Recover After a Hysteroscopy, D and C, and NovaSure Procedure?

According to the Johns Hopkins Medicine, recovery time for a hysteroscopy D and C, and NovaSure procedure varies based on the patient and the type of anesthesia administered. If the operation is performed on an outpatient basis, the patient may leave the hospital after two hours. Recovery takes several days.

Johns Hopkins Medicine explains that the total post-op recovery period for this procedure can even take several weeks. During this recovery time, the patient may experience a watery or bloody, vaginal discharge. Therefore, it is advised that the patient wear a sanitary pad to quell the bleeding. Some of the other symptoms that the patient may experience during recovery, include: nausea, cramping, and vomiting.
