Short Bowel Syndrome - Massive/ near total resection of small bowel is a rare surgical entity with one to two per million globally and survival rate is much more meagre. Sustained post op TPN being unaffordable in rural population is again a handicap in the prognostic index of the patient. One case from our hospital survived with enteral feeding post operatively with minimal TPN.
