a question to the veteran members who have been through this: how long did it take post op before you could get back to work or even just leave the house for a while without worrying about
finding a bathroom on short notice? Was the recovery as much about
regaining energy as the previous surgeries or was it mostly about
the bowel control?
Best wishes Darlene for a speedy recovery!
