Glad to hear you have reached this side. Don't worry the gas in the abdomen will pass soon, and then the first bowel movement (also a significant event). Then you'll start feeling much better very quickly. The caution to you is when your appetite returns weight gain is an issue. I probably put on 10 pounds in 2 weeks before I regained some control of myself, and started to exercise more.
Soon you'll be in good shape, and ready for the Bowl Games. Give us up-dates when ever you feel good enough to sit in front of the computer. Have a speedy recovery.
