The development of total parenteral nutrition has made possible the preservation or prolongation of life in many patients who could not have survived just a few years ago. The economic, psychological, and time costs of such continued supportive care can be monumental however, and may even be prohibitive in some cases. The presented case report documents the continued survival and maintenance of excellent quality of life in a young woman for 11 years following massive small bowel resection.
