My cat had a Colectomy

My oldest cat, Petunia, an 11 year old Siamese mix, had a subtotal colectomy 3 weeks ago. I understand that it will be awhile before her body adapts to this procedure but my problem is that she will not use her litterbox now except to urinate. She does her other business on the towels that I put in her bed (she is confined to a large crate) whenever I am not home.

I am interested to know if anyone else's pet has undergone this procedure and what the outcome has been for them. Is this normal and will she eventually go back to the litterbox?
