I just had a resection, and my 3 year old was at the hospital just about every day. If I had to do it over again, I would not have let my daughter come the day of the surgery. It was very traumatic for her, especially when they took me to the OR and when I had just returned (with the tubes all over the place). She was horrified to see me in such bad shape.
