Does surgery of primary cancer of the rectosigmoid junction require a colostomy?

Does surgery of primary cancer of the rectosigmoid junction require a colostomy?

Very rarely: There are 3 reasons why a stoma may be needed: 1-if the cancer is so close to the anus that removal would leave too little to re-connect to. Using modern techniques, this is very rare. 2-if the cancer caused complete blockage or perforation requiring emergency surgery, a temporary stoma may be necessary. 3-if we are concerned that the new connection may leak, we temporarily divert w/an ileostomy. ...Read more

This is especially of concern if there are adhesions or scar tissue due to endometriosis, previous surgery, or cancer. I recommend bowel preps before a davinci or laparoscopic hysterectomy to minimize risks of a bowel perforation and to facilitate repair if it should occur. ...Read more

If patient had total colectomy with Ileostomy placement, can they have a surgical procedure involving ileum to sigmoid/left colon several yrs later.

YES: if one performs a left colectomy, even extending the dissection below peritoneal reflection, as long as there is a rectal stump, 1-2 cm above the levators, proximal bowel can be reanastomosed.

What is the likelihood of death and complications of gastric bypass?

What is the likelihood of death and complications of gastric bypass?

Gastric bypass risk: It depends on where you have surgery. Nationwide, the risk of death is about 1/500 to 1/1000 operations.

I would only trust my associate and a handful of colleagues to do a bypass on myself or a relative. ...Read more
