Ask a Healthcare Provider Your Colon Health Question Now

Q

Do I still need a colonoscopy after I had my colon removed as a result of colon cancer?

I am a survivor of stage IV colon cancer. Almost 2 years ago now I had all of my colon removed. A year ago I was able to get a reversal done on my ostomy. Do I still need to get a colonoscopy done?

If they took out the entire colon and left nothing but small intestine, you do not need a colonoscopy.
