Didn't you know that the colon always starts behaving when it hears the word 'colectomy'? But, even it can't keep up the 'Oh, aren't I a good colon' act for long. It is bad and needs to come out!
P.S. - My surgeon told me that I might not be able to have sex after surgery, too, and I'm a woman, so go figure.
P.S.S. - Good luck on Friday!!
I had the same thing done about three weeks ago. They told me there is a small chance of that happening. I'm only 21, so as you can imagine that was the main thing I was worried about as well.
I didn't have any problems and within a few days it was all back to normal.
Hope it all goes well.
All the best.

You mentioned that you feel so good these days, that's exactly what I went through as well ! I felt 100%, no troubles at all. The last time I had a major surgery( colectomy) I was so sick that I didn't care whether or not I even woke up afterward.
It was a real drag to stop feeling great while I went through this, but it is a necessary procedure.
Just think, about a week from Friday you'll be back home again, recovering and getting better !
Again, best of luck, and keep us updated if you feel like it after you get home.
I bet it's great to be back home. Glad the man is gettin back into shape, but don't rush it.... :)
Have a good recovery !
I don't think I will call my buddys over just yet, I need to get out of the rut and mybe go to the toy box or something.But I think things are looking like they are going to be OK, Like you all say time is the best healing of all.
I wish everyone well Troy
