PROBLEMS WITH MUCUS DRAINING FROM MY RECTUM AND VAGINA:
I have been to several doctors and have had several test done,and it seems that no one can find the problem.I am getting ready to celerbrate my second year of my colostomy on the 9th of this month.The past year has been pretty good for me,except for this problem that can not seem to be found.It has been going on for about six months now.I was told when I had my surgery that I would have mucus drainage from my butt every now and then.Then in the last six months I have been going through a terrible time with a brownish yellow discharge draining from my butt and then is started coming out of my vagina.I started wearing the long pads to stop from soiling my underwear,but they did not work.So now I am wearing depends,and they are getting expense.I go through about two a day.When I am sitting around it is fine,but when I am up walking around that is when it starts.I also feel like my buttt is full like I am going to have a bowel movement,but all that comes out is the brownish drainage,and lots of it.I love to go out and walk,and swim.But this has put a hault to that.It has gottin so bad that my butt looks like a diaper rash,and it is cracking open the area around my vagina.I don't know really what to do,except hang around the house.I was supposed to go back to the surgeon that did my colostomy today,(6/4/08)but he went on vacation two weeks ago and has not come back yet,so I am rescheduled for (6/25/08)I just hope that my butt can hang on that long.If any one out there,is having this problem or has had it,please tell me what to do,or maybe what the problem is,so I will know what to expect when I see my surgeon.At this point,all I want is to have my rectum removed and get over with.That way I know that I will not have any more drainage.I'm I wrong for that done.I will 60 years old in August,and I have been through H-ll ever since 1966.I have had to have 28 surgeries since then.Some of them are minor and some have been major.I think I deserve peace of mind with by body,and get it taken care.That you everyone.
I HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP ME.
