I just had a partial colectomy 10/25/07. I had to have part of my sigmoid colon removed, my appendix removed, and my bladder "repaired " due to a fistula that formed and caused adhesions between my colon and bladder.I was in the hospital a little over a week. I was re-hospitalized for 3 days about a week later with what they said was either a partial obstruction of the small intestine or I had an illeus. Anyway, my question is, can you really be cured from diverticulosis? My colon and rectal surgeon says that since he removed the diseased portion of my colon (only 10"), I can now eat pretty much whatever I want as long as I am getting 30-40 grams of fiber a day to promote healthy digestion. I just find it hard to believe that a few months ago I couldn't eat hardly anything I liked and now I can. Also, I noticed that since my surgery, I have had an increase in gas and bowel movements. Anyone out there have any insight? Thanks,

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
