Q. how successful is the treatment of removing the colon? Are there any people who have had their colons removed successfullly? What other treatment options are there and how successful are they?

it's "success" as a treatment depends on the cause. i can tell you that this is the area that absorbs B12 and bile and most of the water, so expect a shortage of that three. in the water and bile case- expect watery stool...
sorry all that doesn't seem such a nice state but when Dr. come to the point they have to do it- there must be a good enough reason.
