Hi all,
I saw the surgeon this morning and my surgery for total colectomy is this friday.  She will admit me Thursday though to do the prep because I have such a time with that.
 
She expects me to be in the hospital 7-10 days.  I will have an "open" surgery, she cannot do the laparscopic due to previous abdominal surgeries.
 
I'll try to let you all know how it goes.  She agrees this colonic inertia is caused from the MS.

Take care. While this certainly is drastic surgery, it sounds like what is necessary for your overall health. I hope you heal up quickly and uneventfully. Take care.

Thanks all...I really appreciate all of your care and concern. I will report as soon as I am able. Lifewithms will try to keep you updated as well!

I am quite nervous but I know this is what needs to be done. I am very relieved I am being admitted for the prep tomorrow.

Thanks again, I will keep all of you in my prayers as well. :)
