This discussion is related to problems
after bowel resection.
In February 2006 I had an emergency bowel resection. For no apparent reason, a large portion of my small intestine had twisted and
the blood supply to my intestine had been cut off and
died. About 40% of my small intestine (ileum and
ileocecal valve) had to be removed. For the next 2-3 months I had horrible diarrhea after everything I ate. Within one week I went from 135 lbs. to 115 lbs.
