Most of your pain and discomfort will be from the abdominal wall musculature that is separated during the hysterectomy.
I'm Having a Mini TT and Lipo of Flanks in Conjunction with a Full Hysterectomy. What is the Recovery Like?

Mini tummy tuck in conjunction with hysterectomy
Your recovery is going to really depend upon the hysterectomy and that is a better question for your gynecologist. My mini tummy tuck patients go home some day, are back to work in 10 days, back to cardio at 3 weeks, and back to weights and yoga at 6 weeks.
Hysterectomy, Minitummy tuck, and Liposuction of Flanks
The hysterectomy will likely be the main component of the pain if this is a total abdominal hysterectomy and the abdominal wall is violated. If the hysterectomy happens to be vaginal (from your description I do not think this is the case), and you are having these other cosmetic procedures the pain should be much better in a few days to a week. If the minitummy tuck involves plication, this will be a longer recovery. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Unpredictable for an individual.
Much depends upon how extensive the mini-TT and lipo will be, but chances are the main contribution to discomfort and disability will be from the hysterectomy. Checking with your GYN will therefore give you a more reliable prediction.
All the best.
