smhair    Well, the Humira isn't working and the doctor could not fully examine my colon today during a colonoscopy since part of it is closed.  I meet with a surgeon next week.  My question is, has anyone here had part of their colon removed?  How long is the hospital stay and the recovery?  I was told that I would not need a bag, which is good.  Thanks everyone!

I had my TI & cecum removed in my first resection. I here they are doing most of the surgeries via laprascope which would give you a much quicker recovery. My best suggestion is to make sure you walk, walk and walk after your surgery. It helps to get things moving again. Good luck!

Hi sorry the humira has not worked  but stay POSITIVE i had a right hemi the first time around in 93 i had open surgery and stayed in hossy about 2 weeks but that was because i  was so underweight. the recovery and pain relief was ok but is much better these days. like Nanners said walk as soon as you can as this will make you recover quicker and stop you from getting chest infections it was the best thing i ever did to this day have had no probs in the colon since good luck Bev x

Hi Tia I didn't read your history is this your first surgery u will do great I had plenty of them now and the recovery time is different each time but like nanners said it is very important to get up as soon as u can and do some walking don't over due it and use your pain pump before and after u get up it helps a lot Best of luck to you Tia is it?Jenn
