i had mine removed, and it didnt take long to heal, it was hard because it was hard to get comfortable, i couldnt lay on my sides or stomach because of the stomach incision (i had my ileo at the same time) and i couldnt lay on my back because of my butt, so i finally figured out a way to prop myself up. and sitting was hard, and i ended up sitting sort of on my tail bone, which resulted in a bed sore like thing. So, i just finally had to tough it out and sit where it hurt. And it itched really badly, i found that wearing a panty liner and changing it like every hour helped with that, i dont know if you could get him to do that or not.
i don't think i helped you any, i might have made it worse!
but it only hurt for about two weeks, after that it would only hurt if we drove over railroad tracks or something, but by four weeks it wasnt hurting at all.
UC for 8 years, before finally kicking its butt and having a permanent ileostomy April 17 2007!
-I have gone to find myself, if i get back before i return, keep me here-
