This might seem like a silly thing to worry about, but I'm wondering whether my waist will be smaller after my colon is gone (independent of any weight loss or gain). I am a very small person and have a devil of a time finding clothes that fit - a lot of times, if a store even carries a size 0 or 1 pants, it's still too big. I've seen some people comment that their waist is lopsided, but what about the overall waist measurement? Will I have to give up pants forever, or shop in the children's section??
