Teddy - Last summer I had a sub total colectomy. The morning of my surgery I weighed 100 pounds, a week after surgery I weighed 92. Since then I have been unable to regain al the weight I lost and currently weigh 96 pounds.
Like Rosemary, I welcome you to visit the total colectomy thread. That is where those who have (or had) colonic inertia post. There is a weath of information and much support there.
