Partial Colectomy Recovery Time
Pain: It really depends on the timing and specifics related to your surgery. Causes could include anything from gas pains or muscle strain to some complication of surgery. I would follow up with my surgeon to get checked.
Is it possible for diverticulitis to cause pain on the right side if I've already had a partial colectomy?
My girlfriend had a partial colectomy and there is a bit of tissue that is coming out of the body were the staples are is that normal?
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.
What do you suggest if my husband had a partial colectomy a month ago due to diverticulits. But now he is having internal hemmorhoids?
He should talk: With his surgeon and determine what is causing his hemorrhoid flare. Usually his surgery should not be a cause of hemorrhoid flare unless he has been constipated or having frequent diarrhea due to his surgery. Again his surgeon should be notified and evaluate your husband
My husband had a partial colectomy a month ago due to diverticulits. But now he is having internal hemmorhoids. Could these be related?
No: He probably had the hemorrhoids before, but without symptoms. He probably was taking pain killer that will make him constipated, which can make the hemorrhoids to enlarged and cause pain with occasional bleeding. He should contact his surgeon and be evaluated.
If someone has had subtotal colectomy w/Ileostomy placement, can a partial colectomy be performed later on down the road? And what's the difference?
Big difference: A subtotal colectomy is removing almost all the colon; usually just a couple of inches are left near the rectum. A partial colectomy is not done AFTER a subtotal colectomy because there is basically no colon left. A partial colectomy implies that only a segment of colon is removed, like the right or left, and a good amount of colon is left.

2 surgeries in one month for 75y old (partial and total colectomy) caused hyponatremia (128).In one month, it increased from 126 to 128.How to reach 135?
See answer: In hyponatremia, there is an imbalance of water to salt which can have many causes. Most important thing is to determine the cause or reason (s) for your hyponatremia so that appropriate targeted treatment can be recommended. In general, treatment includes water restriction and medication. You should discuss this with your doctor.
Is it normal to get hernia from partial sigmoid colectomy & pulling pain to my rectum& pain in rt side that goes into back & down my leg?
Hernia is possible: If there was an open incision, there is about a 15-20% have if getting a hernia, unless the "short stitch" technique was used, then the risk drops to 5-8%. A variety o aches and pains are normal after major abdominal surgery. Best to see your surgeon for an exam to find out. Hope this helps!See 2 more doctor answers
I had a partial sigmoid colectomy ten months ago, diverticulitis symptoms gone. Still have chronic llq pain. Lifting left leg causes pain.
Had colectomy and chemo 8 years ago. Still going 10-20 times daily to bathroom. Pouchitis sporadic problem. Any way to decrease number of stools?
Yes: Pouchitis? I assume your colostomy gets inflamed. Begin with diet and start a low fiber diet. If no better after 1 or 2 weeks try bulking agents (fibercon or equivelent). It's counter intuitive so first try no fiber then trying more fiber to see which helps. If still a problem consider small amounts of Imodium (loperamide) regularly. Look into all your medicines and make sure diarrhea is not induced.See 1 more doctor answer

Total colectomy 2month ago (75 y old).Have dizziness since that time (hemoglobin 9-9.5).A doctor advised transfer 1 blood unit another suggest injection?
Symptomatic anemia: Both are reasonable options. Since you are symptomatic, treatment instead of observation might help improve symptoms.
