I am not quite 3 months post surgery, retro-sigmoid. I was W&W for 5 years. I faithfully did exercise every week and I believe it was my biggest help for recovery. I did a lot of balance exercises in one of my classes, so after surgery, I did not really have any balance or dizziness issues. Within 3-4 weeks I was back in class. Just wasnt able to do the treadmill or eliptical yet. Now I can do the treadmill just fine. My recovery was very easy and quick. I did go to 2 sessions of vestibular therapy, but then the therapist told me on my 2nd visit that I was doing so well, I did not have to return.
I was at peace before my surgery thanks to the many prayer groups I had. Just keep a good, positive attitude and expect a good outcome. Prayer really helps! I'll pray for your surgery. I will be 68 next month! When is your surgery date?
