confused  Hi I'm a 47 yr old female, had cronic constipation all of my life but it's getting worse. My bowel was  perforated  in 2003 woke up from coma 1wk later missing 40 cm
(16 inches ) of bowel. Just saw a sugeron who recommended total colectomy and ileo rectal anastomosii.  
Would like to hear from people who have had this procedure done.
 
Thanks grannie ei

welcome to the forum, grannie!

You have found a great place to help get some answers :-)    I won't be able to help with your questions...my diagnosis is Crohn's...but I wanted to direct you to the "total colectomy" treads.  I am pretty sure there is one that is focused on your situation.

hi grannie and welcome to this wonderful forum!

you can learn a lot about this surgery and it's outcome if you read the total colectomy threads, just google "total colectomy part 3" and start reading.. there's a wealth of information there. also, if you have questions you want to ask, you can join us in the total colectomy part 22.

i haven't had surgery yet, but hoping to have it soon.

best of luck to you!!

hi 2b colonfree,
 I had a quick look at total colectomy part 22 and freaked out. I was hoping for all sweetness and roses not more possible problems. I feel really bad for the people suffering and feel like a whinger now. cry
I hope all ops don't end up this bad and I pray that it all corrects itself for the lady (i'm hopeless at remembering to write down names) who is suffering so much.
I hope you are having a great day.
Regards Grannie Ei
