Yes it was, that's why I preferred a planned surgery, rather than as an emergency which would have been open surgery most likely.To Layla,
Was you surgery laproscopic? I am having the laproscopic surgery in a few weeks, for the same exact reasons, it would be inevitable for me also. Did you have to do a low residue diet, and what to expect after surgery.
I was off work for about 2-3 weeks and then did some work from home. I was pretty weak the first week but after that I started improving rapidly. I can really recommend to get as fit as possible before the op, it makes a big difference in recovery time!I don't have to clean out my bowels, but I do have to do a clear liquid diet the day before. How was your recovery?
Seems you're already doing all the right things!I already eat right and work out, what else do you recommend, to prepare, to get fit?
Not really. I did feel a bit anxious about something going wrong in general, but not really related to eating. After months of being a sick person I really wanted to feel normal again, and being able to eat properly was a big part of that.DEmberton, sounds like you really had a very good result with your surgery, that's awesome, I'm hoping for similar results. So you increased the volume of intake of food pretty soon after your surgery. You weren't afraid if you ate too much that you might damage the area of the surgery?
