Sarah would like to know:

“Has anyone here had a bowel perforation? If you had surgery, how did it go?

My best friend is in the US and had the surgery yesterday, I’m in India”

  1. I had bowel resection surgery in 2007. It was done because of diverticulitis. I had about 8 inches of bowel removed. The surgery went well. I was cut from my navel down. I only used ibuprofen for pain after. I had a good surgeon. Not issues after. You really can’t see the scar now.

  2. I had bowel perforation surgery last year. I was soo sick before and it was an emergency surgery. Had an excellent surgeon, went home the next day and haven’t had a moments problem since. I think it’s how bad the problem is and how good is your surgeon.

  3. I had a resection after a micro-perf due to divertic… I had a best case scenario… I didn’t need a bag after and I’ve had no problems since. It’s all about having a great surgeon.

  4. I have been retired a year now, but have worked at a accounting office for 2 seasons from Feb until April 15th. I’m 50/50 on returning. My main concern are the roads are so bad here in the winter and as I get older, my more inclined not to drive on them. Just looking for guidance in this decision that has to be made by end of next week. My heart is not telling me what to do so I’m asking for suggestions from you all.

    1. My ex-husband had surgery after a ruptured colon but it was emergency surgery as it ruptured and spilled the content into his abdomen. He was very sick and in a lot of pain but there was also malpractice and I should have gone after them. He was in a lot of pain so they gave him a lot of drugs. Where she lives in the US will dictate how much and what type of meds she will receive. He was in the hospital about 15 days then home and very sick afterwards. He had a colostomy bag, which I learned how to change but he did not do well at all. We eventually got him to a place where he could have bowel resection but it was a year later. I will pray for your friend.
