Had surgery for appendicitis. Colon cut during the surgery. Repair surgery scheduled. Need second opinion

My friend had a severe case of appendicitis and his colon was nicked during the surgery. He did not start to sow symptoms of this until much later. I am going to be talking to his gastro MD today. What kind of questions should I ask him. He is planning on having surgery to repair this after all his infection has cleared .

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

I am so sorry to hear the complication of colon cut that occured during appendicectomy surgery.

You can ask his gastro doctor about the treatment options, about the surgical procedure, and the duration of hospital stay.

Discuss about the recovery, the timing of start of oral feeds after the surgery.

Hope I have answered your query.
