When is cecectomy contraindicated?

Not all patients qualify for this type of surgery. Only a medical practitioner can tell you if you are an eligible patient for cecectomy after he or she examines you.

Some patients might not be eligible for cecectomy because they cannot stand the effects of the anesthesia and the laparotomy. People with severe medical comorbidities fall under this category.

In order to determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure, your doctor will need to know everything about your medical history and any current health problems you are facing. A series of tests will also be required in order to establish which are the available treatment options for you.
