I've recently had a (very unexpected) rignt hemicolonectomy - the doctor thought I had appendicitus but when they opened me up they found a lesion/lump just under the appendix and removed the right half of my colon, forming a bridge to join it up with the left half.
Can anyone tell me if it is safe to do either colonics or an enema after this operation. I've been partially raw for a few years now but this has scared me into being almost 100% - I'm still eating cooked veggies but have stopped meat and dairy (and smoking). My stomach isn't working properly yet - it's less than 3 weeks since the op - and although I'm having green juices, green smoothies and salads plus wheatgrass juice every day I still am not having an elimination every day.
Does anyone know if it is safe to have either an enema or a colonic after this operation, and if so how long after the op should I wait>
