    Not me, but my wife had one and was back at it in about a week. I do remember she had some significant shoulder pain that was supposedly associated with the gas they pump into the abdominal cavity to perform the surgery.

    Just had mine this month lol. It was laparoscopic so 3 incisions and two weeks out of work. It took about a week to feel better, and 3 until I felt normal. The 1st 3-4 days post op were the worst. Just take gas-x and the pain meds they give you.

    Agreed, it does suck and it is considered a major surgery. I imagine and hope you will be feeling a lot better by the 1 week mark.
