My wife had her ileostomy reversed 3 weeks ago. Last week she had some discomfort in her anal area and saw the surgeon. He didn't think it was the beginning of an abscess, but sent her home with antibiotics. This morning, a pimple like thing appeared next to her anus. This is very discouraging to her since this is the reason she did the temporary ileostomy in the first place. I'm still hoping it's not an abscess, but does anyone have any input on this?
