Plan ahead with your surgeon and the hospitalist (if possible) to arrange for home health for yourself for wound care, ostomy teaching, and for therapy. You must be home bound in order to receive this level of care.

Are there special recipes and dietary guidelines for people who have had a partial colectomy?

Answered by:
Dr. Ronald R. Kline
Colon and Rectal Surgery
colon  Diet Colectomy Colon Feces

Usually not


Depending on the portion of colon removed you may need more fluids to compensate for that lost in the stool. Most limitations in your diet will be learned by trial and error, learning which foods to avoid.

Yes


Often in women who have had a prior hysterectomy, the sigmoid colon shifts from the left to the center or even the right side of the lower abdomen and hence pain would be felt in the suprapubic or right lower abdomen mwith diverticulitis.

Surgeon needs this


Please understand that surgery carries significant risks and surgeons must know about complications. Your friend would have been given post operative instructions and a list of things to watch for. On that list will also be instructions on how to page the doctor should a complication arise. Without seeing this friends' 'tissue' in person it would be difficult for any of us to comment.

Port site hernia


Your "belly button hernia" may actually be a laparoscopic port site hernia following your laparoscopic colon removal. Generally speaking, if an abdominal wall hernia is symptomatic (tenderness, protrusion, obstruction), we advise repair. Some small asymptomatic hernias may be safely watched. Consult with your surgeon.

Port site


This is most likely a laparoscopic port site hernia. They are usually small and relatively easily fixed. Options include approaching it by reopening the trocar site directly, or to approach it laparoscopically through other incisions. Either way successful repair should be expected
