Hello, I had an emergency surgery 9/2 due to my colon Perforating all of a sudden. Woke up tummy hurt so bad I stayed in bed all day. When my sister got home she took me to an emergency ER standalone place. They took me right in did a scan they told me I needed to pick the hospital I needed to go straight to OR. Happening so fast! I woke up from surgery with large large cut from my chest down to bottom of abdominal. Shocked scared! They took out some of my colon and had to cut me because I became very septic almost cutting the oxygen to my brain. The positive note it was reversible within three months. I had reversal 12/7 Now again it is the unknown experiences I have had. By the way they did take a little bit more of my colon out during the reversal procedure but I have most of my colon. So my reverse so we came a six hour surgery.
