What To Expect After Surgery
Your belly will feel sore. This usually lasts about 1 to 2 weeks. Your doctor will give you pain medicine for this. You may also have other symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea, constipation, gas, or a headache.
At first, you may have low energy and get tired quickly. It may take 3 to 6 months for your energy to fully return.
You will probably need to take 4 to 6 weeks off from work. It depends on the type of work you do and how you feel.
