Laparoscopic antrectomy with laproscopic gastrojejunostomy

Good morning

My physician did a laparoscopic antrectomy for excision of a GI stromal tumor. He then performed a laparoscopic gastrojejunostomy. (Below is his op note). I'm wondering if an unlisted code is my only option. If so, I'll need to query the physician for a comparison code, which then makes me wonder if (per CCI edits) I'll have to bundle the gastrojejunostomy into the comparison code. I'm quite new to Gen Surg coding, and would really appreciate whatever direction you can provide. Thank you so much.
