hello mr hakeem,
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
Eat and drink only a clear-liquid diet

Do not take higher doses of the prescribed medication and cleanser or use additional bowel cleansing systems or enemas. Drink plenty of water and clear fluids to avoid dehydration
recovery period after colon surgery
varies. It usually involves a stay in the hospital from 7 - 10 days in uncomplicated cases.
