Hi everyone,
I went into hospital in 2005 for an anal skin tag removal and the surgeon did the wrong op in a haemorroidectomy with no bowel prep before or after and used the wrong packing, hence I was left with a severe fissure that needed a skin graft, i had constant infections and pus and blood would drip down my legs, i had to go the the toilet on the floor for months due to the increased pressure in my backside as the pain was so bad, nearly 4 years on im having my 10th op, il list below some ive already have. Im bedridden 95% of time as im in so much pain, tests have confirmed my sigmoid colon has now prolapsed and my left colon does nt fucntion prop and i have slow gut transit.  I also have severe bladder pains which my surgeon says is due to sigmoid colon?  My story was shown on my local BBC this week over what happened to me, and full story is on my webpage, my surgeon has told me this is a risky operation & as i have a 9yr old child who already in counselloring over what has happend to me as she worries so much, my mum has had to come and live with us on and off over last 3 years to help out so my husband can work
Any advice appreciated, i have no life at all at the moment, an illestomy wouldnt bother me as im in so much pain already and have no quality. eyes

Yes i will keep my anal area as thats been repaired, im thinking about surviving on complan and soups for next 6 weeks as cant go on like this. For Example last night at 10 i did a full enema (fleet) was back up at 1.15 doing another one and again at 3.15am, id had to take picolax earlier in the night as im so compacted so today il have diahorrea all day and im so sore already.  At my wits end x

Is it the same surgeon that caused all the problems?

I had a proctocolectomy and it was the best thing I've ever is yours again post surgery!

Noooo not same surgeon, the surgeon who messed me up was polish & worked at a treatment centre, which even now the president of royal college of surgeons are questioning the abilities of foreign surgeons and the case we expect in the uk. Its very complicated but he ruined my life, suicide has been something ive wanted to do on about 3 occasions, I even knew how I was gonna do it and made sure it was a way that i couldnt be brought back to life if i was found. Very traumatic and emotional time, on antidepressants and i have ongoing counselloring when im well enough. Its 4 years soon that it all started and i just want to be painfree and have a life back. But mainly more than anything I want to give my child back her mum
