Has anyone been through an end to side laparoscopic resection?
Usually the colon is re-connected end to end not end to side..

@atina, I updated the title of this discussion to reflect your question to bring in other members with end-to-side laparoscopic colon resection. Can you explain more about the type of colon resection you will be getting to help me connect you with others? Will it be:
low anterior resection.
When you say end to side, are you referring to the surgery resulting in an ostomy pouch?

The procedure performed was a laparoscopic low anterior resection with side-to-end 28mm coloproctostomy; no pouch
Thank you for your help
