Reconnection after total colectomy with ileostomy bag.


Tue, October 15, 2019 2:19 PM

Hello everyone! This is my first post but i wanted to see if there was anyone else who had their entire large intestine removed and then later reconnected their small intestine to the remaining rectum. My apologies for grammatical errors, i'm on my work break. Any help is appreciated.
