First off, I was glad I had the resection. It took a while to normalize after surgery, weeks for me, No medications for over 2 years. Inflammation resurfaced currently trying Entivio Just had my 3rd dose, pain is down so far so good. Time off of work, well that's another story,
I was laid off at the time. Although I was able to walk and lift 50 lbs without problems at 5 weeks, at 12 weeks I went to Scout Camp with the Troop and walked , hiked swam with the boys, covered at least 65 miles closer to 75 miles in all probability.
The best advice I could give you is walk everyday, the more you move the easier it is. Your GI and surgeon will better answer questions of what you cannot eat, raw veggies for a while. Pizza and pepperoni are on my no go list. I can deal with just about anything else.(food wise) I am down 20 lbs since surgery. A very gradual weight loss.
