First surgery

My wife and I got the call today that she'll need a bowel resection. I'll keep doing additional research on this, but I thought I'd ask you kind people for your insights on what to expect and what your experiences where with respect to recovery time, long term effects, things to watch out for, etc.

thanks for your help.
