every day I feel better.  Every now and then I have some minor headches and backaches but I sm sure is all related to the lack of exercise.

Also , I am felling some pain around the incision area and goes all the way down to my pelvis. Its not allthe time and is like a burning sensatio in my skin.My dr told is normal unless I have fever too.


My big question is....When I m going to get all my energy back? Its 8 pm and I am tired...

    Takes more than 3 weeks

    Although you may be healed externally, it takes much longer inside.  They just chopped you up and nothing helps the healing like good rest.  Be patient with yourself.  It can take months, although with most people probably more like 2-3 months.  It'll come back, don't worry.
