The surgery is about
twice as long as the time it takes for step-1.
Are you having surgery at a university hospital? I had mine at the end of June and they had just brought in their new class of residences, they were woefully unprepared to treatment. thankfully the CR nurses took over in a way that they hadn't during my previous two CR surgeries.
The other thing is that we run into a dehydration issue with step-2/loops. Be very careful during the summer months.
Are treatments for the rectal stump not working?
