What can I do after my appendicitis surgery?

What you can do depends on the type of surgery you had. Usually it is safe to return to normal eating, as you begin to feel better in the days after the surgery. Walking and taking the stairs will not harm you. Heavy exercise, swimming and heavy lifting should be avoided until your doctor tells you it is safe to do so.
