    Question Colostomy Take Down

    AAPC: Back to School
    My provider did a Exploratory Laparotomy and Primary Ileal Sigmoid Anastomosis and Closure of Ileostomy.

    I keep going back to 44626 but I know this is not correct.

    I cannot find allot on reversal of Colostomy.

    Have you looked at 44625? I am not sure why you are thinking 44626 isnt correct unless it has to do with the position of the anastomosis.....
