You will be sore and it is a bit difficult to start the bowel process after an laparotomy because everything has been stopped for
. You will do fine though!
my opinion, thinking about an upcoming surgery and waiting for
it to happen is much harder than the actual recovery
. I had to leave my two young kids and was also upset about that
. You won't be able to go home the same day with a laparat
omy. It is usually about a 3 day hospital
