Ectopic pregnancy surgery

Question:
I'm writing to ask for some advice on a medical matter.
I suffered a ruptured ectopic pregnancy on 18th August, resulting in surgery where I had a fallopian tube removed. They consider this to be like a hysterectomy operation, with a similar scar and recovery procedures.
I'm young though, only 29 years old and in good health so I am recovering relatively quickly.
What I would like to know is whether you can give me any advice on diving after this operation.
When will I be able to dive again?
Is there anything I need to be careful of when diving?
Are there different recommendations between diving in England and more "fair-weather" places?
And anything else that you think might be relevent.

Answer:
The surgical operation you had should not be considered different from any other abdominal surgery procedure, and, in absence of post-surgery complications and with normal healing of the surgical wound, diving can be resumed when the wound has healed and normal activities are again possible, including the ability to perform physical exercise, also involving the abdominal muscles, without problems. The time required may vary from individual to individual, but it is not normally longer than 6-8 weeks, and frequently less.
As an alternative evaluation modality, and to be on the safe side, it could be generally said that when the surgical scar's reddish or purple color fades away and starts resuming a clearer "skin" shade, also the internal should scars have healed satifactorily and normal activities, including diving, can be resumed, unless other problems, such as unexpected internal adherences, arise.
Once healing has been clinically ascertained, diving can be resumed without any particular limitation, as to climate, or level of qualification.
