Surgery is a major part in the field of Gynecology. Hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus which is leading non-obstetric surgery worldwide, after caesarean sections. The objective of the current study was to determine how well women undergoing hysterectomy surgery managed their pre-operative and post-operative self-care. A quasi experimental single group pre-test and posttest design was used for this inquiry. Pre - and post-operative self-care management questionnaires were used to collect data from 60 women. Utilizing descriptive and inferential statistics like mean, standard deviation, and chi-square test, data were gathered and examined. Data analysis revealed, the mean post-test knowledge score (23.81) was greater than the mean pre-test knowledge score (10.33). The average disparity was (13.48) with the estimated "t" value (16.003), which was more than the table value (1.67) at 0.05 level of significance, showing that the self-care management education program was successful in increasing women's understanding on hysterectomy. The study concluded that pre- and post-operative self-care management education program had significantly improved health status among women underwent hysterectomy.
