Here's my second question of the day:
My colon was removed by laproscopy on April 5th. The plan is to have the second operation six months later, for forming the pouch. So while that could happen in October, I will probably wait until December for reasons purely related to my work.
The first time I had a long talk with my surgeon, he told me six months between the first and second operation, and then the third operation could happen as early as 4 weeks after that. Based on all the reading I've been doing, it sounds a bit early.
Does it sound possible that the third step could be taken so early as 4 weeks after the second step, or do most people have to wait at least three months?
BTW, my surgeon is great. The main inscision is only 6 centimeters long, and just 7-8 weeks after surgery, it's thread-thin.
Best to all,
