My tuppence: I wouldn't risk a partial bowel resection in case the constipation returns in the remainder of the colon. There was somebody on here that this happened to, although I haven't seen her post for a long time, so I dunno where she's at now...
Also, in terms of having an ostomy, a colostomy is a bit easier to manage than an ileostomy in some ways, but you still have to deal with having a stoma and wearing a bag - it's not like one is radically different to the other.
I dunno about
a rectal anastomosis. I have one and it sucks, but I have Crohn's. Again I'd be worried about
the inertia returning in the rectum - although I should imagine it's easier to deal with an impacted rectum than an impacted colon. I would talk to more than one surgeon if you can - get their opinion on what the best surgical outcome for colonic inertia is.
Dx Crohn's in June 2000. (Yay )
Tried: 5-ASAs, azathioprine, 6MP, Remicade, methotrexate, Humira, diets.
1st surgery 20/2/13 - subtotal colectomy with end ileostomy.
2nd surgery 10/7/15 - ileorectal anastomosis. Stoma reversed and ileum connected to the rectum.
Current status: Chronic flare. Do I have any other kind?
Current meds: 50mg 6MP; Entyvio (started 3/11/16)
