Does anyone know what prep goes into a subtotal colectomy? I know one's colon must be cleaned out. So, what does this entail and how far in advance is this done? Thanks!

I think it depends on the individual doctor and the reason for the colectomy. For example, a person with Crohn's might be able to get away with a normal (day before) prep, but a person with CI might have to do a longer one. I had to do a three-day prep.
