Hi again guys!

I was wondering if anyone anyone can tell me about recovery time for abdominal gunshot wounds?

My story is set in World War II. My character will be shot by a Japanese (using an Arisaka rifle) whilst running through a field of tall grass. The wound will be in the abdomen (though this may change, especially which side). There's going to be a lot of blood and the character will be near death (due to blood loss?), if not for a highly-skilled doctor in the vicinity.

What I'm wondering is, how long will it take before my character can be up and about enough to travel with friends and join the resistance? Can anyone describe the pains associated with abdominal wounds? Excruciating or tolerable to a degree? And what can be done to reduce the pain (WWII-era, with very little supplies, no morphine).

Thanks again!
