Mel Greig – How do you recover from Endometriosis surgery?

It takes on average four weeks to recover from endometriosis surgery. Not ideal for any woman, if you ask us. 

Welcome to the end of endometriosis awareness month! To celebrate, I spoke to Endometriosis Australia ambassador and TV and radio personality, Mel Greig.

You might know her name as she used to be one of the hosts on the Hot 30 Countdown where she replaced Kyle and Jackie’o many moons ago, and has interviewed stars like One Direction, Rihanna and Ed Sheeran. She is here to talk to us all about her experience with endo, her recovery from 6 surgeries, and how we need to open up the conversation to spread awareness.

Here’s a summary of what we spoke about:

  • What Mel was like growing up, and how she was a runaway child
  • Her health journey from childhood until now
  • Her journey with endometriosis disease
  • How she discovered she has endo
  • How Emily manages her endo
  • How she dealt with her six surgeries
  • Why the Heal Better Kit is the way to go when it comes to recovering from Endometriosis surgery
  • Her advice for those in the same boat
  • Advice on how to manage unresolved symptoms
  • Tips to manage flare-ups with a busy schedule
  • And more!

“The average patient like me needs to take 25 days off work for abdominal surgery; given the fact we have 4 weeks of annual leave a year we need options to help in decreasing the recovery period. I believe that patients need to learn and self-educate on what is available to us to speed up the recovery time and to use each day of recovery effectively.”
