Usually next operation can be done after 6 weeks if the health of the child
is good and weight is appropriate for age. Otherwise surgery can be delayed

What is the first operation? This is quite confusing. Even if an operation is required in typhoid fever, stoma is not required. For any stoma, it can be reversed as soon as it is not required. Where did you the first operation?

Stoma can be reversed as soon as primary disease is settled and child is fit for surgery as considered by surgeon. Hope the question is answered

Stoma can be reversed as soon as primary disease has been cured and patient is fit to undergo surgery. few tests would be required before reversing the stoma.


Time of second surgery will b suggested by operating surgeon, mostly we do
stoma closure(second surgery) with in 3 months.
