My training for the Berlin marathon was well on track, then I got an acute bout of appendicitis about 2 weeks ago. I've had the blighter removed, but my surgeon says I won't be able to run for four weeks after the surgery, which means I'll only have four weeks then before the marathon. He also says that it will be three times as hard to run it than normal because of the surgery.
My question is - what are other people's experiences of running after having their appendix removed? I had keyhole surgery and am walking completely normally. How soon can I get back into my trainers?
