Sir
If the entire colon is removed how can I proceeed to a normal life? Is it colostomy? Is there any artificial organ to be placed inside my digestive tract? Can the meidicines may help to protect the organ and avoiding the lead towards colon cancer? I wish to hear a detailed answer from your side.

Brief Answer:
You can have a normal life

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for your followup

The affected colon is removed with normal margins

You can have a normal life

The colostomy may be needed and usually it is temporary

An ileal pouch is created as an reservoir, no artificial organ is needed

The surgery followed by medicines can help
Hope this helps
