Hi..welcome to the forum.
Does your husband already have liver problems?
I've not heard about
liver problems happening after colon removal unless there already is a problem undiagnosed...but I haven't done the research either.
I have UC-related liver disease, and my thought is that if my colon is kept calm/quiet..the liver disease doesn't progress as quickly, so my thought would be that if one has UC-related liver disease, it wouldn't be as much as a problem as would if the colon were still intact but in constant inflammation.
Again, don't know for sure.
The main question is still...does he have liver problems or is it suspect at this time? Are his liver enzymes elevated?

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
