Some considerations include pre-surgery diet, post-surgery diet, what to expect while you are in the hospital, and what you will need to do after discharge from the hospital. The Center for Advanced Digestive Care has information available for download for patients with an upcoming colorectal surgery, with or without bowel resection.
