Is the woman advised by doctors not to observe Sawm due to experiencing an operation exempted from Sawm?

Q: I underwent surgery at the beginning of Ramadan, during which I did not perform Sawm (Fast) according to the recommendation of the doctors. I gave out the equivalent of Mud (a dry measure of half bushel, 543 grams) of wheat. I asked scholars, some of whom said that feeding Miskins (needy) is valid, while others said that I must perform Sawm for this month. I hope Your Eminence will answer the following questions, take into consideration that two years have passed and I did not perform Sawm for this month: 1 - Should I perform Sawm for this month or feeding is valid?2 - If it is not valid, is it permissible to perform Sawm for this month before next Ramadan?

A: You should perform compensatory Sawm for the days you broke your Sawm in Ramadan at the time of the surgery. Allah (Exalted be He) says: ...and whoever is ill or on a journey, the same number [of days which one did not observe Saum (fasts) must be made up] from other days. (Part No. 9; Page No. 97) Moreover, you should feed a Miskin (needy) for every day you delayed the performance of compensatory Sawm until the next Ramadan had come.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
