So what about
how long it takes to feel like a person again? lol, I'm only a few weeks post-op and I was told that once I get my staples out i'll feel a lot better, which I don't doubt (I get them out this Friday woot!) but I have a GI tube that is really uncomfortable and I was told will have to stay in for 6-8 weeks because I was really sick. I'm hoping against all hope that it was a conservative estimate and I'll get it out no longer than 6 weeks so I can be tube free for my birthday. So far all the dr.'s have been amazed at how fast I'm recovering for how ill I was so that's a good sign
Ignoring the tube issue, how long would you say it took before you just felt normal, not necessarily good, and could do everyday things like bend over and stand up for more than 10 minutes?
