I honestly haven't been given any advice that I thought was particularly good. Each cancer survivor has to find a direction post-treatment. We also have to try to be patient in our recovery from the extremely harsh treatments that most of us have had. Generally speaking, people who have walked this road understand how much the treatment and after-effects can vary, and I've found these people to be wisely hesitant to assume they know what is right for someone else. And honestly, people including family, who haven't been down this road might offer advice but probably the recipient wouldn't think such advice is useful. The surgeons and radiologists are good at predicting the next stage in recovery, and the oncologists much less so, but such specific medical advice doesn't seem to answer your question. I think we each have to find our own way, and this is one of the factors that adds more poignancy to our personal journeys. I had hysterectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation, but probably the answer is similar for people who have had other surgeries followed by chemo and radiation.
That said, many of us on this site can offer our own experiences with regard to specific procedures and/or side effects that you might be facing. Regarding hysterectomy, I had robotic surgery, all the "parts" removed. I had such a terrific surgeon that I walked out of the hospital the next day. The surgery required time to overcome internally, but my recovery was better than I expected. So to anyone facing surgery, just go to the most experienced surgeon at a facility that routinely does this surgery, and your odds of a good surgical outcome are excellent. Don't worry about the headlines of surgical problems as long as you have chosen the right place for your operation.
Hope this helps. Perhaps some one else will have a better answer.
