6 week post op appointment?

Can someone tell me what to expect my surgeon to do at my 6 week checkup? Will he just check my incision and ask questions? Or will he check me internally?

What my surgeon did was check the incisions and went over the lab results and my restrictions. I did not have an internal check. It took about 10 minutes.

I had internal at 2 week 6 week  and I will have another at 12 weeks.
I didnt see surgeon, but Physian Assistant, I will see surgeon on 12 week.
They check you all over and talk to you and you need to make a list if you can't remember any questions you have.  I was told I had to wait another 2 weeks to bend over etc at my 6 week, cause I was still bleeding.

This coming monday will be 6 weeks for me, and if i dont have any more pain on my right lower pelvic area i think i would feel fine enough to go back to work, so i think if your not having any complications you should be fine. I am hoping my pain is just from over excursion or sprain, today and yesterday totally pain free and feel great. Hope you do to!!!

belle10 -Your pains sound like the same thing I went through around week 5 for me. Come to find out my pain was caused from doing too much. It's hard when I didn't really know my limits :-) My doctor/surgeon did an internal on my 2 week and 6 week post-op appointment.

jazzy6 - I still would not do any lifting at work though. When is your 6 week post-op appointment - this Monday? I would ask about the pelvic pain.

Yes i think you are right as i have been running the sweeper alittle, also little other things i probablyshouldn't. My husband is helping SO much though and i feel its to much for him when he also works 8 hours a day. He never complains though. I will be 7 weeks monday and my drs appt is tomorrow. When i talked to his Pa she said he would only check incision site and go over reports with me and wouldnt do an internal. Could she have been fibbing?
