hysteroscopy is considered a regular surgery procedure with full anastheasia. I think it will depend on the extent of the operation (how much they have to do, how extensive is the work and any cutting/suters they have to do to the uterus) which will determin your length of recovery and depending on the individual's response. Also, allow enough time to make sure you have no complications following surgery, i.e. infections.

I think for me the recommendation was "no travel for 4 weeks" but much longer restrictions on other activities, i.e lifting, exercising, scuba diving, etc. and most significant was no TTC until all had healed (6-12 months).

Hope you have much simpler circumstances!
