I'm going to get my spleen cut out Monday morning. Just curious to what kind of recovery I am looking forward to. The doc said I will be out of work for about 6 weeks but I am wondering how long it will take to get out of bed and resume daily activities. My spleen is about double in size so I won't know what type of surgery he performs until post op. Hopefully it's laser but he said if it's too big they will have to cut me open to remove and I will have to stay in the hospital for a few days, ugh. Been battling autoimmune hemolytic anemia for a few years now but I lost the battle. At least I have an extended vacation for the holidays and the football season to look forward to but getting old still sucks.
