right hemi-coloctomy? if thats what you ment , yes i have had that done years ago. the right section of your colon is removed and the remaining part is reatached to your small bowel. sometimes this is needed because of the amount of disease in the terminal ileum area that has spread or is too adhered to the acending or "right" side of the colon, which is the area of the ileo-cecal valve etc...

i would be dang sure what exactly you are having done BEFORE you get to the hospital monday. if you are at all unsure , be certain to ask the surgeon to explain it in terms you can understand before ANY type of operation.

good luck and let us know what happens... randynoguts

Hi Tish,
My prayers are with you. Good luck and keep us informed.
Hi, I am teddybearweiser, I am a male.
I was diagnosed with crohns disease when i was admitted to the hospital
in 1992, in Jan of 1993 I was back in the hospital for surgery for my crohns. I had part of my right colon resectioned with ilecolonstomy.
 My GI doctor has me on Asacol, Dicyclomine,Imuran,Celebrex and Remicade. B-12 injection once a month.
My Internest doctor has me on Lisnopril-HTCZ and Folic Acid. Diagnosed
with Osteoarthritis July 2007

Hi Tish,
I am sure you are nervous, and I will be saying a prayer for you.  I have never had one but I have taken car of a fair amount of patients that had this procedure and they have done well, so we are all here to support you and cheer you on.
Gentle Hugs my friend.
