Well my colonoscopy came back clear as well as my CT Scan so I am now scheduled for colon reconnection on Tuesday, 27 Feb 07. Hospital stay is about 5-6 days if all goes well. Recovery time is 4-8 weeks and the BEST NEWS of all, I was told I could return to weight lifting in June 07, HURRAY, HURRARY!!!!!

I know, the BEST NEWS of all was NED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    that's great news, nudgie. Be sure to ask them if there is any type of exercise you should avoid when you return to the weights. Depending upon the route of the incisions there can be a risk for developing a hernia along the incision with certain exercises. Continue to enjoy NED.
