Hi, I had my colon removed and my j pouch created a little over 2 weeks ago. I am scheduled to go in for my takedown surgery 4-6 weeks from now. What are some things that I can expect in the first couple of weeks after my takedown surgery. Will it be as rough as the first?

I just had my takedown April 30th, so I'm about a month and a half out...

It was rough at first, i really didnt like the way things were..i went to the bathroom sooo much..15-20 times a day. I was really doom and gloom about it all, i still rather am but as of right now going to the bathroom has cut down alot..depending on what i eat really, sugary stuff makes me go more..Butt burn was a big complaint, going so much and wiping so much things got raw..people say to use calmoseptine as the best one, i cant find it only online so i used diaper rash cream like desitin or something similiar, it really helped, Warm baths helped it as well and felt so good. theres so much to the healing after takedown i wish i could offer more but im right there with you.
