can someone tell me what to expect. i've bounced back quickly from my last two surgeries and i was wondering is this gonna be as painful as getting your colon and rectum removed? what is my down time? will i be able to go to work soon after? will it hurt to go to the bathroom normal again? my rectum was rmoved 3/20/08 and i will be going in for my last surgery at the end of may or june.
