Yeah, I wonder if open vs lap make a difference in time frame? Mine is supposed to be laparoscopically.

Mine was about 2 1/2 hours and was a lap. My resection was due to a tumor. The surgeon told me she'd be inspecting the rest of my intestines to see if there were any more tumors so it probably took her a bit longer.

Yeah I think my "open" resections took about 3 - 3 1/2 hours. Mine took a wee bit longer because they had to clean up so much scar tissue first.

Thanks, all. I was guessing in the 2-3 hour period but wasn't sure.

It's scheduled for tomorrow afternoon! I'm supposed to be at home starting that prep but have too much work to get finished. I may be up late tonight =(
