Posted , 2 users are following.

hI I'm a 30stone 6ft5 male and I had open surgery to remove my appendix 6 days ago, i was discharged from hospital yesterday but I'm still so sore in my bowel. is that normal? my consultant said it will be sore for weeks as it was a big procedure as i am a big guy. I'm just after reassurance really. as I've never gone through this before and I'm a bit scared. thankyou for reading.
