Yes.  I just had this surgery in March as my small bowel obstructions we’re landing me in the hospital once or twice a month.  Apparently it took 45 minutes for the surgeons to “unstick” one section.  I had an epidural post op for pain relief.  I must be honest.  It was the most difficult recovery  I have had.  My bowel does not like to be manipulated and did not start working until about 2 weeks post op.  I also suffer from terrible nausea post op which is totally normal for me but miserable none the less.  I went back to work full time 6 weeks later and feel absolutely fantastic.  My pouch is functioning normally and best of all NO MORE OBSTRUCTIONS!  No more pain, nausea, etc.

I love my surgeon.

I hope you have success.  Being out of the hospital for more than a few days at a time and working full time with energy and enthusiasm is liberating
