Hey folks. I’m coming off an appendectomy on Tuesday night. Recovery is 3-4 weeks depending on how bad the perforation is (mine was pretty well contained per the surgeon).
Has anyone else here had an appendectomy and do you have any thoughts / suggestions for when I get back to it? I was lucky in that the doc was able to complete everything laparoscopically so the damage was minimal and recovery should be easier.
My understanding is that the biggest risk from lifting anything post surgery is a hernia. Is there anything else to consider?
I will probably plan to start lightly on Jan 1st to be on the safe side.
