I had the same surgery in March. The stints are no big deal but the surgery is! My whole Sigmoid colon was removed along with an ovary that was embedded into it. After the surgery, I wasn't allowed to eat for 12 days(till I had a bowel movement). Stock up on Boost w/high protein! Drink at least 4-5 a day till you can eat solids again. Don't let the doctor discharge you without good pain medicine either. It took me about 6 weeks to fell good after the surgery but it was well worth it! Good luck!
