I have to go to surgery colostomy closure.What to expect after surgery?What should be my diet after surgery?Thank you
Follow advice: Following colostomy closure, i think it's a good practice to avoid very harsh roughage(nuts, popcorn, etc) until your bowel movements return to normal. Otherwise you should expect things to return to normal but it may take a week or two. It's best to follow your surgeon's advice, however. ...Read more
Not necessarily: It depends on where in the colon your surgery is and for what indication ie cancer or benign disease. Sometimes the colostomy is temporary as the surgery may be 'staged' into two or more operations. You should consult your surgeon regarding the specific indications for the surgery and alternative options. The majority of colon operations are completed without a colostomy. ...Read more
My dad just had a colostomy surgery and doctosr pu a bag for all the waste, is it permanent, kidney is removed?
Hello!!...Considering Bowel Surgery Colostomy - Hollister - how can i remove my scars from my tummy?
Ive had about 5 episodes of diverticulitis since May....keeps returning monthly. Does surgery mean a colostomy bag is necessary?
Probably not : It's likely that you won't need a colostomy. It depends, however, on which parts of your colon are involved. Usually the disease is most significant in the sigmoid colon. It can usually be removed and a new connection (primary anastomosis) created without the need for a colostomy. I'd suggest you see a surgeon, go over your imaging, and discuss the options. ...Read more

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it sometimes "normal" to have pain 5 mos post-colostomy surgery? (partial rectum removed- cancer.) sharp spasms of pains off & on in lower region.
Yes: Pain can occur at least up to 5 months postsurgery after any major abdominal procedure when a partial resection of the rectum has taken place and there is no colostomy, it infers that anastomosis has been performed. Occassionally the suture line starts to close down partially narrowing the lumen of the rectum. One must check that this has not happened. Sometimes dilatation needed. ...Read more

A colon and rectal surgeon specializes in this surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
