surgery recvery?

hey everyone. this is pretty much a general question about surgery. I had urethral surgery almost a month ago and i was wondering how long does it take for the body to fully recover. Ive never had surgery before so i have no real idea. theres still stiches in there(they fall out on their own)and the areas still sore.Like i said just a general question as to how long it should take for recovery.

Re: surgery recvery?

It really depends on the surgery. I had surgery to remove a tumor from my neck and that took about 1 month. This summer I had a brain tumor removed and I am still recovering. I really think it dpepends on the surgery and how long you were under anthestia too. Hope you feel better soon.

yeah,the areas gotten much better. Its still sore and red though. However it is in a place were urine and germs are constantly exposed to it so im sure that makes it a little harder to heal.
