Yes, she is normal for where she is at post surgery. Expect improvements in 6 week increments for the first year. Food will be trial and error but at 6 months I was eating everything and today I enjoy all foods and have no limitations. A bit of bleeding is normal on an ocassional basis but if it's daily she should be checked. You might want to add some bulking fibers to her diet; I think you must be in the UK so I am not sure if Metamucil is available there but it is a popular fiber in the US. A stricture is a common complication but easily repaired.
