goinglong, welcome to the club. Sorry you have to be here. You ask some good questions, most of which I can't answer. The one thing I will is to learn how to do Kegels, begin to do them religiously from now til surgery. Combine them with as much walking as you can get done, especially including hills or stairs, along with ab crunchs or situps to help get the gut in tone while you can. You started the right way, by coming here, and doing a lot of reading. Take advantage of both while preparing for surgery.
