    Default Surgically closing a stoma

    Is it just a scope job? Trying to work up a convincing argument for the local surgeon to do DD's close here in town as appose to the big kids hospital like we've always had to. If its just a simple scope procedure, i dont see why it shouldnt be possible locally.

    We're having our stoma closed in a few months (after the major surgery) and personally I wouldnt trust anyone but our Super Surgeon to do it - partly because of his skill and the facilities available to him, and partly because he knows the baby and will be able to recognise in an instant if something is not as it should be while he's in there. I know sometimes distance is a problem, its 5 hours to the hospital for us.
    Do you know if your child is having a Contrast before they close the stoma (to make sure everything is travelling from start to finish unheeded) because perhaps they might need a tertiary facility to do that??

    Thanks for your reply

    I doubt she'll need a contrast done, she's fully oral and thriving. It 'Should' just be a case of scope in and out, a quick few stitches. I hope! We see the local surgeon again on the 11th Jan, so fingers crossed.
