If you think coughing is not fun with a laproscopic resection, you can only imagine how bad it was with an
open resection. I hurt so bad after my first resection, I didn't even want to breathe. Ouchy!
Good to hear you have got the gas on the move. I think thats the beginning. Hope you are able to go soon, so you can go home.
Remember though that just because you are feeling better, not to overdo. Remember you just had major surgery and still need to rest and recover.
