Last week I had a right hemicolectomy because last year I had my appendix taken out and it was pretty inflamed, and I had tests done(colonoscopy/MRI scan) because I wasn't feeling myself a few months after the operation. I got a phone call from the hospital saying the tests/pictures show that where my appendix was the stitching had come undone and stuff had leaked which was causing me to be ill. So I had to have a right hemicolectomy which is where they remove part of your bowel and colon and connect it all back or something. I got discharged from hospital yesterday and it's going to take about 2 weeks for me to fully recover as I'm still pretty fragile (hurts to walk/move ). I just wanted to know has anyone else ever had this operation before or know of anyone who has had it done?
