Anyone else choose the WRONG doctor?

I am thinking the same thing. Not because of her capabilities as a surgeon and DR. She has a good reputation as a good DR and surgeon. She is very nice and did talk to DH for 1/2 after surgery and in detail how it all went. BUT !! After knowing I would have over 100 stitches she told told me 3 weeks before surgery was final that I would be out for only 2 weeks. Very casually, "mmhh 2 weeks ". NOT !! I could barely stand after 2 weeks. I told my work I would only be out for 2 weeks. So, then at day 12 I had to call them and tell them I needed at least 2 more weeks. I was in so much pain and still could barely walk. Thank goodness they are great people to work for. And the disabiltiy insurance company even told me that for my procedure 28 days was the minimum\average time off from work. I can BARELY be ready for work on Monday tomorrow. Then my home restrictions were pretty vague. I did not know what exactly there were if any until after surgery. I should have been given this amd more info on what the next 4 weeks would be like BEFORE surgery just so I could prepare. Thank good for this website. I should have obtained all of this info from my GYN. She even told me I could go on vacation after 2 weeks, just no sex. I was so upset that I was so incapacitated post op because I did not expect it. I am on day 26 and still cannot be up for more than 3 hours. I get swelly belly and pain and have to lay down the rest of the day.
