Post surgery recovery

I had a laparoscopic ileocecal resection 21/2 weeks ago- recovery going well does anybody have experience of when I might return to driving and jogging after this type of surgery?

  1. Glad you are recovering well @helb. I haven't had this procedure before so I can't offer insight but I just wanted to pop in and offer some encouraging words. Rooting for you and I hope you continue to improve. Big hugs, Elizabeth (team member)

    1. There are no no concrete rules I'm afraid, as we don't all recover the same. After 6 to 8 weeks, assuming there has been no complications etc, you should be able to return to a lot of your usual activities with the doctors say so - starting slowly of course!
