... specialist 4 months out from major abdominal surgery? I had 52 surgical staples after I was cut open from below my ribs all the way to pubis. I had a 8.5 pound tumor removed from my uterus! They cut out all of my reproductive organs, parts my omentum, some lymph nodes, and I had an umbilical hernia repair! My God, can I get some sympathy that I will need my surgical doctors in my medical care team for longer than 4 months? Or am I delusional to think this way? Thank you all for your advise and insights
