I see in your profile signature that you have had two resections. Was it because of a stricture? My stricture is scar tissue, so it looks like it will need to be removed down the road. It is my sigmoid colon. May I ask about your experience with the resections?
1. Why did you get it (symptoms, scarring, etc.)
2. Laproscopic or open
3. Length of hospital stay
4. What meds did you take for pain right after surgery
5. Did you need an NG tube
6. Where the surgeries worth it
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer this. If you don't feel comfortable posting the details, I certainly understand.
