I had colon surgery in April of the is year. I had to wear an ileostomy for about
6 weeks after surgery. The ostomy was removed about
8 weeks ago. I am still having bouts of constipation, followed by quick trips to the bathroom. Followed by mild pain in the area of the colon where the operation took place. I am taking Metamucil twice a day and watching what I eat.
I keep hearing from people I work with that their friend, or relative, etc.. went through the same operation and are having no problems at all after a short recovery time.
Can anyone tell me how long the recovery should take?
