:Pending Hysterectomy

I am 51 and this week I was diagnosed with fibroids and a cystic lesion on my left ovary.  My doctor has suggested a hysterectomy and has referred me to a specialist who I will be seeing on Tuesday. I am awaiting the results of the CA 125 test.  I also have to undergo an operation for an umbilical hernia so I'm guessing that both operations can and should be done at the same time.

Are there any complications from a hysterectomy (I'm assuming removal of womb and ovaries)?  What is the normal recovery time and what can I do in the meantime until the surgery.
