English term or phrase:come round proper from the op yet
The word I can't understand is "op". I think that the characters are in a hospital for the context so probably the term has relation with this. The whole paragraph says:
"She said he hadn't come round proper from the op yet and Strickland wasn't going to spell it out to him till he had. But he'd spelled it out to her, and to Vince, loud and clear. Nothing doing. Opened him up justo to sew him back together again. The, while she was there by his bed afterwards, he'd come round anyway just for a bit and she hadn't said nothing and he hadn't asked but he'd looked at her and all he'd said was, 'I want to see Lucky' "
