If you have Colon Inertia and Small Bowel dysmotility and/or Gastroparesis, will surgery be totally out of the equation?

not necessarily. i have a slow small intestine and the colectomy still gave me much relief. i don't have gastroparesis, but i think that in any case letting go of a nonfunctional colon can only help.

NO!! Gosh you have to be very unfortunate to have all of those..
i read on the UOAA board of someone who had the gastroparesis and a failed j pouch and going back to the ileo rectified the problem  - something has to be done !

Thanks ladie. I appreciate it. I found out at 4 hour that only 20% was left but 10% is the top of normal. So I have it, but it is mild.
