Colon interposition

Going to have a colon interposition after having esophageal cancer. My esophagus was removed and then my stomach due to poor blood supply!! Has anybody gone through a colon interposition?? Any recommendations?
Thanks

@Yenchy Hello……I must be honest….I had to google “colon interposition” to learn what it is…..I have not had this procedure done…….I am on the colon cancer journey myself….

I wish you only the BEST !

Hi there,

My heart goes out to you. This sounds very complicated. Poor blood circulation in the stomach could not have been easy.

I have a colostomy. And a prolapse now. Today got worse as a new length of my colon is now on the outside of my body. Sucks. Have to see the surgeon.

Cancer does suck.

Sending you best wishes.

Hi! I’m so sorry for what you are going through!! They removed my stomach and I was put on a feeding tube and spit fistula so not being able to eat or drink is no picnic!! They are hooking things back up with this interposition!! Is your colostomy permanent?? The surgeon hopefully can help you!! Cancer does suck!! This is my second cancer!!
I wish you the very best with everything and good luck with your surgeon!!

No food or drink. I can't even imagine how hard this has been for you. I hope you have a speedy recover and this operation does everything you are hoping for.

Colostomy permeant. Thinking the prolapse may be permeant as well. My colon is attacking me today. Don't even want to know what it looks like right now. Can't be good.

I also have a new tumor so my remission has sadly ended.

Hugs to you. Cancer sucks.
