I am, in the next month or so, going to be scheduling a resection surgery (my second one). I have ended up in the hospital 2 times this year for an obstruction, and I am ready to head it off at the pass before I have a 3rd. The surgeon said that he didn't recommend a laproscopic procedure for a second resection due to possible complications. My question, for those of you who have had surgery, is what kind of recovery time did you have? I work in retail, so the 4th quarter is the most important time for me (and my paycheck). It was so long ago that I had my last surgery, plus it was laproscopic, and I didn't have a job to go back to at the time, so I'm not really sure what my recovery time really was.
