I have had the same surgery myself. I ended up having to have another resection 3 years later because I became narrow in the reconnection site and was suffering with alot of nausea. From I hear, most people do well after their resection. Be sure to take any maintainence meds.
I only had D for a couple months after each surgery. Some will get alot of D afterwards and others like myself only have it until my intestines wake up and figure out how to work again. The only time I had the explosive stuff was the first 3 weeks or so after surgery, then it seemed to quiet down.
I wish you a very long remission after your surgery.
Just wanted to bump this up, since I too will be facing my 1st resection of about 12 inches of my illieum.
I want to continue reading all new posts.
I want to Thank ALL of you for your very honest and informative replies.
