Unfortunately infections seem to be pretty common after surgeries. I think it can't hurt for your docs to do the extra tests to be sure they know what is going on. Many people on this forum have faced some very serious illnesses and medical crises. The insight and courage I have gained from these wonderful people has really helped in me dealing with my issues. I hope it works the same for you. Good luck!
Ileostomy since August 2005.
As result of surgery (modified whipple) for necrotising pancreatitis. Removal of gallbladder, 2/3 of pancreas, resections of large and small intestines. Massive infection. 8 months in ICU at Westchester County M.C. (I think that's a record). Second surgery for resection due to fistulas in January 2007. Been slowly recovering since then. Possible reconnection candidate.
