Have a bowel resection or carcinoid tumor in the terminal ileum. Recovery time?

Hi Dr Narasi,

I'm having a small bowel resection for a small carcinoid tumor located in the terminal ileum. I'm a university student, and the new semester starts a week-and-a-half after my surgery. I'm really hoping that I will be able to resume classes within the first couple weeks of the semester. Is this too ambitious?

hello there, am not Dr Nasari, but my humble opinion tother with his might be of little help.
i don't think you are being to ambitious. i think if this was done early, you have no reason to fear as the recovery time will just be a couple of days or weeks more. so, very soon you'l go back to school. however, allow your surgeon to decide what time is best for you to go back to school. thanks
