Hi my names Odele
I was supposed to have a loop ileostoma 17th July, then it was to reversed 3 months later. % weeks ago I found out after it was an end ileostoma which I didnt have informed consent for. The first 4 days went well and I was sent home, two days later I had a bad blockage, terrible labour pains, my right side was like a valcano, so off to hospital I went. Was there for hours in emergency waiting around, when I did see a doc she had just got out of medical school and didn't even know what a ileostoma was. but she did decide to put her gloved small finger down it, made it bleed and then inform me its soft, you haven't got a blockage go home, which I did. During the night I started vomiting as well, shaking, pins and needles and feeling freezing cold.
The next morning the stoma nurse came and saw how bad I was and rang the hospital and put me back in the emergency dept and again waiting for the Registrar Bridget whom put a foley catheter down my stoma and then bag over and readmitted to the ward. The next morning the bag was full of green waste, well this went on for 4 weeks and I was on a fluid/soft diet. In and out of hospital - catheter then home the next day, I kept informing them I felt like I was being strangled and they told me, I was being over sensitive as the first xray and ct showed nothing.
Put, one night another doc put under the x-ray when I was really blocked and see the blockage straight away, it was from under my abdominal to my left hip. The cut in my abdominal wall was too small for my intestine and it was being cut of. Well they redid the surgery, on the 14th August then just after the 2nd surgery my bed was accidentially tilted over half way and back and I bounced up and then back down on the mattress. I screamed as the inner stitiches felt like they were being torn and the outer stitiches were torn. Blood filled my stoma bag and since then I have been in severe pain under the stoma.
I feel like its the piece of colon that was strangled and its not functioning. I've been back in and they reckon they can't find anything with their tests, ct /old fashion barium meal, that blocked me up for a week after they remembered to give me a laxative after 6 hours of having the test, they made me drink 1 1/2 litres of it. I am at the end of my rope with the pain, I can't hardly walk or think. My pain meds are oxynorm 10mg / 4 hrly and panadol. Not doing anything for me.
Any suggestions on what sort of tests or pain medication I could take.
