I would suggest not doing what I did. Don't pay attention to every symptom and think about what they mean...and don't stay down too long...(this is mentally bad...and the body stiffens)...try to move around as much as you can...stretch when you can, too. Pay attention to your diet. All these things may do nothing, but, at least know that you tried what you could. I had major post-surgical depression...eating right and getting the proper vitamins is a good idea at fending this off. Give your body a break from excessive fiber after surgery, too. I have read its hard to process foods that are high in fiber and are processed (canned goods, etc). Milk makes antibiotics and other meds not work does pineapple. Otherwise...just don't push yourself to fast. A good 3-4 weeks is crucial in healing the muscles. I got this info from my doctor after my recuperation didn't go well. Hope you feel better soon...and are up and around (maybe not jumpin jacks...LOL) Love, Marianne --- Michelle <> wrote: > Hello everyone. I had a total abdominal
