I was ok after resection ! But infection did set my healing back 6 weeks with vac machine ! Like you so sore still 4 months later but getting a bit easy !!!! My doc told me nothing ! Yes it’s so sad they don’t explain to you ! What is going to happen to your body , I was so worried so nervous and so tired of it all ‘ never never again do I ever want to face anything like that !! Afull ! Why don’t doc explain to a person after operation , good luck to you all ! It will get better sooner or later x
