I just have to say, getting home from hospital after surgery is not a competition. If you manage to get there quickly, well done you!
However, everyone is different, MOAS (mother of all surgeries)* is a very invasive procedure and recovery is an individual experience depending on certain factors.
Laparoscopic surgery is different in my opinion, it’s not as severe on the body, and the length of surgery needs to be considered. Some are lucky to be diagnosed really early, long before all that crap gets time to settle on your organs and run rampant.
Take your time, there’s no rush, go at your own pace and don’t feel pressured to be at a certain stage, just because someone else is. You’ll get there, in your own time, be happy still to be breathing and above ground……..

*MOAS – the Mother of all Surgeries, a nickname used by patients to describe cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC (Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy).
