Your West Kendall OBGYN surgeon typically prescribes an antibiotic to prevent infection, as well as pain medication to manage your discomfort in the days immediately after your surgery. Your doctor advises you regarding incision care and activity levels. Although you can't return to strenuous physical activity for some time, you can often resume mild-to-moderate activity sooner than you think.
