I have Crohn's & my GI dr said i need a resection of my ileum. Can this be done through laparoscopy? What is recovery like- # days in hosp, eating etc

Depends: The type of surgery, if laparoscopic or not, depends on the degree and type of disease. If the surgery is due to fistula formation, then laparoscopic surgery may be very difficult. If the surgery is for isolated disease and due to stricture then laparoscopic surgery more likely to be successful. May be in the hospital a week or less, should be able to eat fairly normal by the time you go home. ...Read more

Can colon resection(~25cm)lead after few days to complications(e.G.Arteriosclerosis) and eventually to total colectomy within 10days?Is that frequent?

Deoends: I do not have enough information. Why was the first colon surgery - cancer? Colon surgery does not cause arteriosclerosis but diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity ; elevated cholesterol can. Surgery risks are increased with increased age, diabetes, high bp... If there was already vascular disease before the first surgery, bleeding, anemia, bowel obstruction, emergency surgery...= increased risks. ...Read more

Almost 1 year post posterior fossa men. Resection, with complications, i realized recently that I have not sneezed since the surgery.  Concerning?

Sneezing: Sneezing is typically a response to irritation inside the nose. I doubt the surgery caused this, but not being a neurosurgeon, i don't want to say it cannot happen. It is also possible nothing has caused enough nasal irritation to lead to a sneeze. ...Read more

3 yrs post post. fossa tumor resection, complications included hydrocephalus, SAH, Tons. Herniation. Head still hurts when I cough, valsalva, etc. ???

Probably no issue: You have been through a lot, so not surprising that you would worry, BUT, even though a Valsalva may make head hurt, unlikely at this point, that you are in any danger. If you get dizzy, lose vision, or feel sick when you cough or strain, have an updated MRI just to be safe. ...Read more

What should I expect in the days and weeks following my lower anterior resection (lar)? Is there anything I should be prepared for?

What should I expect in the days and weeks following my lower anterior resection (lar)? Is there anything I should be prepared for?

Depends: It mostly depends on whether you have a diverting ileostomy or not ("a bag"). If you don't, then the main changes relate to the increased frequency of bowel movements. Many patients have less warning that a bowel movement is coming. Most patients have a low energy level for a few weeks that gets better. Watch for signs of infection (wound drainage, fever, chills, nausea, vomiting). ...Read more
