Quick version-I had my colon removed on 6/17 laprascopically and have a permanent ileostomy.
I was about
to be released on 6/22 but vomited following a tray of modified liquids.
A NG tube was inserted and I was NPO the next 5 days.
My Xrays showed that my sbowel was loopy but my stoma contiuned to produce-although it was not terribly thick.
The tube was removed on 6/27 and was sent home on 6/29 on modified clears-ensure and sports drinks.
On 7/1, I was readmitted with blockage in my small bowel (gas) and limited stoma production.
I vomited and a new NG tube was installed.
My surgeon tells me that he can't tell for sure when my bowel will wake but that it will eventually. My family does not want me realease untill I can handle solids.
