Dear PaulaD, thank you for your post. Im sorry to read your daughter has to have a colectomy, of course it is a very anxious time for you all.  Waiting times vary for different procedures and different hospitals, we would suggest speaking with your daughters liason nurse or consultant to voice your concerns.  If you would like any advice or support, the nurseline is available on 1800200700. Kind Regards
