ABSOLUTELY is the only answer I can give you. I had mt Total Colectomy nearly a year ago and although you may see from my recent posts that I am still having issues with other areas of my digestive tract and although I had a long road of recovery with complications I would do it again all over tomorrow. Each person responds to this differently, but honestly I have yet to find someone who regrets having this surgery no matter the complications. I too had Colonic Inertia (or slow transit).....I will not lie and say this surgery/recovery was a walk in the park. It was a major surgery and even though I am a nurse myself I do not think you can be enough prepared for what can happen......Still ALL THIS ASIDE!!! I absolutely do not regret the surgery and for your problem I think it is definately beneficial.
