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. One can creates a pouch from the proximal bowel to make anastomosis easier and have the pouch act as a partial reservoir for the liquid feces in the ileum that will be used for anastomosis ...Read more
I have had ulcerative colitis for 13 yrs getting routine colonoscopies every 2 years. Last one showed cancer tumor. Full or partial colon removal ?

They still need to be evaluated and treated as a cancer however, and it does not necessarily mean the cancer is cured by just removing it as a cancerous polyp. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
