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

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

Can you tell me about lap radical subtotal gastrectomy w/ en-bloc distal pancreatectomy & transverse colectomy?

Performed for cancer: Radical subtotal gasstrectomy is usually performed for mid to distal stomach cancers. Upper stomach lesions have an Ivor Lewis procedure. To require pancreas body and tail removed means the lesion performated into the lesser sac to involve body of pancreasa and invade gastrocolic ligament to hit the transverse colon. If all tumor out, regardless of approach, chemo may still be needed. ...Read more

Had small bowel resection (5ft),colon blockage removed,appendectomy,and hernia repair done in emerg surgery.Tons of side effects 3months later. Help?

Side Effects: The answer to your questions depends on the side effects you are having. Small bowel resection can affect stool transit time as well as nutrient absorption. Adhesions from any abdominal procedure may be a source of discomfort for some. I suggest you speak to your primary care doc about your symptoms to identify the most likely source of your symptoms. From there you can make a plan. ...Read more

Depends.: It is usually reasonable to observe a cyst like this for some period of time because frequently it will resolve without surgical treatment.

What treatment for painful post hysterectomy complex hemorrhagic bilateral ovarian cysts? Total of five cysts in right ovary & change in bowel habits

What treatment for painful post hysterectomy complex hemorrhagic bilateral ovarian cysts? Total  of five cysts in right ovary & change in bowel habits

Ovarian Cysts: Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts can develop after uterine removal, or they can represent foci of endometriosis or merely retained corpora lutein cysts that become necrotic and bleed into them. Either way, the cysts don't usually burst, but they should definitely be evaluated by your gynecologist immediately, because they can be serious or even be harboring an ovarian tumor. See your gynecologist soon. ...Read more

If someone has had subtotal colectomy w/Ileostomy placement, can a partial colectomy be performed later on down the road? And what's the difference?

Big difference : A subtotal colectomy is removing almost all the colon; usually just a couple of inches are left near the rectum. A partial colectomy is not done AFTER a subtotal colectomy because there is basically no colon left. A partial colectomy implies that only a segment of colon is removed, like the right or left, and a good amount of colon is left. ...Read more
