Can ulcerative colitis after having colostomy reversal surgery?

In brief: Not to worry

If there is no history of ulcerative colitis in the past there is no reason to believe a reversal procedure will precipitate one.
If you did not have ulcerative colitis before surgery you don't have to worry about it after.
