If anyone out there can help me or has some answers I would like to hear from you.
It will be three years this coming June that I had my permanent colostomy surgery done.I was told nothing as to what to expect in the coming days,months,or years,but now I have found myself having a lot of problems.I have been in touch with my stoma nurse,and am getting no where.I have gone back to the surgeon who did the surgery,and he says that he has no idea what is going on,and to move to a Rectal/Colon Specialist.Well I have done that,in fact I am now going to my fourth Rectal/Colon Specialist,and all I am hearing is I don't know what is going on or causing it so I am not going to touch you.All they do is stick their finger up my Rectum.I have another appointment for January 9th way up in Pittsburgh,with another Rectal/Colono doctor,and I live in West Virginia.My problem is that with out any warning at all,whether I am sitting,standing,or walking,all of a sudden I get this wet feeling either from my Rectum or from my Vagina.It has gone past the mucus stage.Now it is almost the end of having Diarrhea.I would say that even when I just sit on the toliet,I drop about a good table spoon full in,of what it is that I am passing,with out even feeling it come through Rectum.This is happening no matter where I am.It is really embarrassing when I am out in public.Even though I try to pad myself really good there are times when it comes right through to my pants that I am wearing.
I have read up on how my colostomy was done.The paper work said that I had a sigmoid colostomy done.Can I still have my colon remove and my rectum sewed shut,or has someone else had the same problem,and if so,what did the doctor to do correct the problem,and did it work.I am at witts ends when it comes to this.My Rectum is so sore that it is beyond funny.I itches all of the time,and everything I have tried to stop the itch has not worked.
I welcome anyone suggestions,as I am trying to get this surgery done.I am tired of it.It has been going on far to long now.
