I needed a colostomy for my anal cancer because of a fistula between my vagina and rectum. Now that my treatments are over and the cancer is gone, my colorectal surgeon believes she can reverse the colostomy. I will get a temporary ileostomy and she will do a colo-anal anastomosis at the same time, then after 2 months, she will undo the ileostomy.
Have any of you had this procedure, and if so, would you please comment on it?
