I am having a subtotal colectomy 13 Jan 06.  I am abit nervous - is there anyone out there who has had it and can you tell me how it went - are you recovered?  Are you normal?  Any information is appreciated.

Welcome!  I had subtotal colectomy on 2/22/05 and am doing great, best thing I ever did!  I encourage you to go to the Ostomy board, there are is a thread titled "Total Colectomy" there are 7 parts now.  We've had this title going for awhile.  There is LOTS and LOTS of good information about our problems before surgery, leading up to surgery, what happened in the hospital and recovery.  It will be lots of reading, but trust me, it is well worth it.  If you would like to email me any questions or anything, my email address is
Welcome again!!  Please ask any questions, and please check out the Ostomy page   tongue
