Thread: colostomy reversal

    colostomy reversal

    Can one have a colostomy done more
    than once? and can one have it reversed?
    My brother may have to get a flap done in the decubitus area for the second time.

    As with the first time, the doctors want to give him a colostomy before he gets the flap done. He had the colostomy reversed after a year.

    We are concern he will not be able to have this one reversed. He has a big scar from the last one

    cuky, it should be possible to reverse a colostomy twice. I have seen it done. They probably can go through the same scar and therefore will not need to produce another big scar. Did your brother ask the doctors? Wise.
