Hey all,   I go to the cleveland clinci on thursday for all te pre stuff and then they are going to do the surgery on friday may 6th.   I am scared, nervous , and all I want to do is feel better!!! i know having this bag has been a tota inconveince but It will all be worth it if I can get rid of the the diseased guts that are making me so sick.  
 
I already have a temp ileostomy, so i am wondering if that will make the surgery easier,   how long was any of you in hospital? my first surgery was done laperscopic, so it was not bad at all, this time they are going to cut me open.  confused     that scares me a little. 
 
take care everyone,
any and all advice wlcome.
 
I Just tell myself, it could be worse !!!

Hi, T Jane.  I responded to you on the other thread.  But, in answer to your question, I was hospitalized for one week.  That's not bad at all.  I felt so good after I got out.  I was so sick that the night before surgery they had to give me two transfusions so I could get through surgery.  My colon had collapsed also. You already know the rest of my story!  You'll be just fine.  I'll be praying for a successful surgery and a very speedy recovery!
