    Doctors.... its such a hard thing to take a position on.

    For the most part, obviously, modern medicine and doctors are so amazing and awesome.

    But when mistakes are made... it's just so out of a person's control. She's asking for what, 25k pounds, in exchange for doctors attaching her colon to her vagina? I mean, for one, those folks should just dish that cash out immediately, and instead she has a fight. For two, there's mistakes and there's what these guys did. Sorry, you shouldn't be doctors anymore. For three, I'd ask for a gazillion dollars. She has no idea what potential other long-term complications might happen, how it might impact her mental state, etc.

    While all that stuff sounds perfectly reasonable in the American context, it may not hold true in a foreign medical system.

    25k pounds may be a perfectly significant amount of money relative to purchasing power and the physician's income.

    A more significant question I have is did they really suture the colon to the vagina in an end-to-side or end-to-end configuration. Because that makes no sense and is probably technically challenging.

    Now if they did an operation that caused a fistula from the colon to the vagina, that's a completely different thing. A bad complication, but not malpractice.

    I've seen colovaginal fistula's before; rare but they do happen. Unfortunately medical and surgery aren't perfect and things like colo-vesicular (colon-bladder), colo-enteric (colon-small bowel), and colo-colonic (colon-colon) fistulas do happen after colorectal surgery. You can sue, but really the surgeon should have disclosed that stuff was a possibility before surgery .

    This is just a bit hard to believe. I don't know the specifics of her procedure/cancer location etc, but usually you transect the carcinoma and just anastomose the remaining segments. You can have fistulas due to scarring and inflammation but if she was passing gas like that immediately post-op then it's hard to think of anything else as being the cause. Not sure why someone would think of anastomosing a tubal segment to a blind area unless they effed up even before that, perforating behind the pouch and then thinking that it was bowel. Really curious to see what the colorectal guys there have to say about their screw up.

    Anatomical representation, not really NSFW

    That's what I was thinking as well when I saw the title, but the article states that she was passing gas vaginally immediately post-op and (defecated also?). The scarring and inflammation causing the fistulas would take a much longer period.

    Meh. It happens naturally (well, with certain disease processes) sometimes, too.
