"Average" recovery time for anal sphincteroplasty

Hello -

I am getting ready to have an anal sphincteroplasty in November. My dr has told me to take 2 weeks to recover at home. Can anyone tell me if this is a reasonable amount of time? Will I be up and feeling well enough to "do life" after two weeks? Can you tell I'm scared about all of this? Advice?

I'm not sure how much input you'll get on this site since the focus here is on hysterectomy support but you can try posting again over on the In Search Of Info/Support For… message board. If anyone has input to share, they can reply to you there.

Based on a similar surgery I had after giving birth, I think that two weeks of recovery time is on the low side. Six weeks or longer is more realistic but of course it's going to vary based on the extent of surgery and how quickly you recover.

Best wishes to you!
