Okay, Im 4 weeks post op 63 cm bowel resection. (illieum) I went to the surgeon and he said he was able to leave 5 inches if the TI...I guess thats a good thing. Its weird though because my GI told me he couldnt get the scope in the TI due to inflimation. I guess I cant go back now. Maybe this will be problems to come.
I go back to the OR Thursday morning to have kidney stones removed......Life has sucked the past month..
Anyway when the stones are out I feel this will be a fresh start for me.
What do I need to be aware of as a post resection patient?
What nutrients/ vitimans / supplements shoul dI take to replenish things I wont get naturally.
Should I take a preventitive medication for CD? To try and hold off a flare?
Also, Prior to surgery I never had D, post surgery I have not had a normal bm yet!! I go 5-6 times a day very loose sometimes watery. The surgeon says this is NOT normal.... I guess I should go back to the GI,
