Was able to urinate

Sep 25 : morning
Able to go to bathroom to urinate
Able to walk around the room

Sep 26 : morning
Finally able to take a bowl in the morning
Able to walk around the room

Sep 27, 28 :
Pain level stayed between 1-2 on the scale of 1-10
Feeling the pain on some movements : taking off bed, chair
Pain when cough or sneeze
Feeling 'movement' behind operation area after taking meals
Walking exercise extended to outside room, hospital

Sep 29 :
Going back to my home country : 4 hours on the road travelling, 5 hours in flight journey, 1 hour taxi drive to home

2nd week :
Took of bandage around incision areas
Continue walking exercise, extending to outside house, mall
Numb feeling around operation areas

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.

Regards,
Prana

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.
