I am sorry your surgery did not go well. May I suggest you ask your GI physician "why" the tests were not done before your surgery as it does seem to be the standard practice from all I have read here ?
Try not to blame the snafu on yourself. WE are the patients and we pay and expect our physicians to know what tests to do preop.
