surgery for impaired colon motility
Has anyone had surgery for impaired colon, damaged as a result of laxative abuse. What was the outcome? If surgery was not recommended, why not?

About a year ago a patient called mifegr placed a posting on the main ask a doctor forum about a total colectomy for an inert colon following excessive use of laxatives.  Maybe you can find her posting + responses by typing in mifegr to the search box.

Anyway, I believe that surgery is a last resort for an inert colon.  Take a look at the following posting which I placed a few weeks ago regarding another question.  I underwent a total colectomy for torrential diverticular bleeding but I suppose that the procedure is identical whether for diverticular bleeding or for an inert colon.
