View Full Version : Elective colectomy

Has anyone on this site ever had an elective colectomy for UC. I'm a 52 year woman. Three years I was very close to having my colon removed due a bad flare. However the hospital where the surgery would have been performed was experiencing a flu epidemic and filled to 120 percent capacity. I was kept in the local hospital. My colon is severely scarred with numerous psuedopolyps. I'm currently in a flare. I would rather be done with the medications and their side effects.

Thoughts anyone.
