These are some questions you may want to ask the doctor before surgery:
- What kind of operation will it be?
- How will I feel afterward? If I have pain, how will you help me?
- Will I need a colostomy? Will it be temporary or permanent?
- How long will I be in the hospital?
- Will I have to be on a special diet? Who will teach me about my diet?
- When can I return to my regular activities?
- Will I need additional treatment?
