A quasi-experimental study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of progressive mobilization on post-operative recovery among women who had undergone abdominal hysterectomy. The main objective of the study was to assess the post-test level of postoperative recovery among women who had undergone abdominal hysterectomy in experimental group and control group. Post-test only control group design was selected for the study. The sample composed of 60 women who had undergone abdominal hysterectomy in a selected hospital at Kottayam district. Non probability purposive sampling technique was used in the selection of samples. Preoperative teaching on progressive mobilization was given prior to the surgery. Progressive mobilization was done on the samples of the experimental group from 8 hours after surgery. On second day onwards progressive mobilization was given twice daily, for 5 days. Post-test was done on the experimental and control group on fifth post-operative day. The data was tabulated and analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistics. The result revealed that the mean recovery scores in the experimental group was 57.50% (S.D = 3.14) and the mean recovery scores in the control group was 32.10% (S.D = 3.64).The mean difference was 25.40%. The calculated ‘t’ value (28.94) was more than the table value (2.02) at 0.01 level of significance. Thus progressive mobilization was effective in improving the postoperative recovery among abdominal hysterectomy patients.
