Actually, 10 times a day is pretty good for how far out from surgery you are. Really good, in fact. It can take quite a while for everything to calm down. Your body is adjusting, and your small intestine has to learn to do a new job. It will take time. Most people have said they feel up to doing things about
6 weeks or so after surgery. I did really well, and I was feeling better about
3 weeks after surgery, but it does take time. The good news is it gets better every day.

If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.
