Bowel Resection

Hi, I am having a Bowel Resection on the 12th November, and I have a couple of questions. It will be done as open surgery.

1. How long was your recovery? I am a single mum with 2 young boys.
2. Do you have to do a bowel prep before surgery?
3. Do you think diverticulitis can be caused by scar tissue for previous stomach surgeries? (Appendectomy, gall bladder removal, 4 laparoscopies and 2 c-secs)

Bit of history.

I had a diverticulitis attack in December 2010, severe enough for hospital, but only for a day or so. It was a mystery as I was young and healthy. I had regular bowel movements and ate fairly well. No colonoscopy was done after I got out of hospital. Fast forward to August this year and I had a severe attack, ending in a perforation. It was treated with antibiotics and almost 2 weeks in hospital. A colonoscopy after I healed showed severe damage to my left side.
