Would like information on a Sigmoid Colectomy Reversal.

Posted by shadco1966

I had a my sigmoid removed in November. I have sufferd with UC off and on for 20 yrs. This year came Diverticulitis and Crohn's resulting in my surgery. I have lost 87 lbs since the first if the year. I feel great. I have an appt next week to meet with my Dr and schedule my reversal in January or February. What questions do I need to ask? I have seen a lot of valuable information for several months post-op. What should I expect as far as pre-op. Will i do a clean out at home prior to being admitted? How long can I expect to be in the hospital? What type of diet will I have and how long before I can return to solid foods? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
