Hi. I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>colon</span> resection
in Jan 08. By 3 months, I was still having a lot of pain
( I am a big baby about pain
). They took out 7 inches of my sigmoid colon
due to multiple episodes of diverticulitis that were not going away after
being on different antibiotics. My surgeon told me it takes about 6 months to "forget you had the surgery". Well in my case, it was a lot longer.
