GI function: You will be ready when your GI function returns to normal , no abdominal distention and no pain , when you are doing all things your were doing before, that includes your exercises. Make sure you go for follow up visits including stent removal.

This is very: Unusual complication, so there is no normal. I think it would be okay after two weeks.
