I suggest contacting the Cleveland Clinic.

My wife has less tha 3 feet of bowel left. They are trying to rehabilitate her bowel, with little success. She is on TPN and just started enteral feeding. She constantly gets blood infections and partial bowel obstructions. She has spent 1 out of every 3 days in the hospital over the last 2 years. Her doctor put her on the BRAT diet to rehabilitate the bowel -- resulted in partial obstruction. We are considering a small bowel transplant and was wondering if anyone has gone down that path.
