I had a piece of my colon and appendix removed last December after they found a mass during a colonoscopy. I was a little worried since it was a open surgery as they couldn't do it orthroscopicly. doc told me I'd need 1 week in the hospital and 2 weeks laid up at home.
Except for some soreness in my stomach muscles I felt great when I woke up after surgery. By the 3rd day I was out of the hospital and 2 days after that back to work. I was expecting the worse but it wasn't a bad experience at all .......my bung hole problems on the other hand has been a nightmare.

I am going back to see my doctor...not getting better and I cannot live this way. I sure hope she suggests surgery otherwise I will definitely bring it up. Just need to know how long I should take off from work? I am a teacher, so I really can't take too long. I was thinking a week of medical leave?? Any suggestions? Image

Hello Delilah72, and welcome.
Your doctor should be able to give you some idea of how long you will need to be off work, but basically, in the end, it really depends on how you react to the surgery. There are many posts from people who have had LIS, so it is basically best to keep on looking through the message on the 'Considering surgery or already had it' link and just read some of those. Any other questions, just ask. I have not had surgery, but will be happy to answer anything else!
All the best. Image
