Side to side osmosis

Posted by oceanone @oceanone, Wed, Aug 7 4:51am

Had to have a colectomy because of frequent diverticulitis attacks 8 years ago but the osmosis was done side to side instead of straightforward & I was wondering if anyone else had this surgery done this way & if they have any problems? I have a lot of lower back pain especially before I defecate & my stools are always floating (because of the short transit?)
Cannot do a colonoscopy anymore because they cannot go through which is scary because there is lot of colon cancer in my family.
Would very much appreciate any comments. Thank you

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.
