It's been 6 months after operation. I feel fine and and I have been back to previous day to day activities, including sport.

Thanks to Prof Desarda and his hospital team that had taken the operation well.

I had about the same recovery so far, it's day 13 for me.
I didn't have a bowel movement for 2 days before and 3 days after surgery, so 5 days no poop.
It hurts too bad to get in & out of bed without help still.

Years later, I hope all is well for you Prana. Thanks for posting this.
