Answer

No special diet is required, and patients may resume activity as tolerated.

Pelvic rest is recommended for 2-4 weeks after evacuation of the uterus, and the patient is instructed not to become pregnant for 6 months. Effective contraception is recommended during this period. [43]

Monitor serial beta-hCG levels to identify the rare patient who develops malignant disease. If a pregnancy does occur, the elevation in beta-hCG would be confused with development of malignant disease.
