It depends on how much inflammation is involved.
It is much easier to hook two pieces of healthy intestines back together, than it would be to hook two pieces of inflammed intestines back together. I don't know if they would even try to hook up two pieces of badly inflammed intestines together?
They may end up having to take more out to find healthy tissue.
In my case, they went with an illestomy for one month, to let things heal up.
Then I had a second surgery to remove the illestomy.
It worked out well.
I had an abcess, which was the reason for surgery, and was 15.
