    my surgeon repaired a peristomal hernia and I'm not sure how to code this.
    he said it was like an incarcerated ventral hernia. Can you help?

    Is this an ileostomy or colostomy? Did he take down the stoma, repair the parastomal hernia, and then re-create the stoma? What exactly did he do?
