I was told yesterday after my colonoscopy that I probably needed to have a resection done. I have infamation that is not responding to meds. and segnificant scar tissue. I was a little overwhelmed with this information. I didn't expect my doctor to talk surgery.
For those of you who have had a resection can you give me some info about hospital stay, time out of work, pain, recovery, etc.
I am a little lost in all of this, I can't find any "real life" talk about a resection, only medical talk.
Thanks to all.
Diagnosed with CD in Jan. 2008.

I choose joy... I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance. I will refuse the temptation to be cynical... the tool of the lazy thinker. I will refuse to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God. I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God. ~Max Lucado
