Found out during a colonoscopy that mine was done side to side. They were able to get through. Not too much later I was back in the hospital with diverticulitis and then another total blockage. Ended up with Deloyers procedure and am much better now. Surgeon said the reattachment site that was side to side failed and was not getting good blood flow. It only lasted 4 months, from 7/31 until 11/27. Was in the ER, went home on antibiotics, then admitted 12/13 to 12/20. Home on clear liquids only . It was a tough few weeks. I ended up losing 17 pounds which I did not have. 1/7/19 more surgery where they did the Deloyers procedure.
