how will surgery to remove a carcinoid tumor in my ileocecal valve affect my vitamin B 12 and other nutrients

I am going to have surgery to remove my ileoccal valve because of a carcinoid tumor there. What should I expect? How will it affect my bowel function? How will it affect my healthy life style of  healthy food and exercise. Vitamin absorbtion. Should I start taking Vitamin B12 or folic acid? Will my body still be able to absorb nutrients correctly? How long does the surgery take . Anyone been through this?
