OK. But I didn't say at all that the incontinency
occured due to surgeon's mistake. I understand very well that incontinency is the consequence of the tumor you had on your sphyncter.
I said that the ileostomy
hadn't been done well, and that is the reason why the stool still passes through anus. If the ileostomy had been done properly, the stool wouldn't end up in the rectum at all. And it is very reasonable to consider it a consequence of the surgeon's professional error. Such things happen to medical amateurs only.
For example, imagine a cardiac surgeon who performs bypass in such a manner that the blood, instead of bypassing it, after the surgery still continues to flow through the damaged part of the blood vessel, continuing to cause severe problems to the patient as if the surgery never took place at all. Such surgery would be useless. Following the same logic but different context, an ileostomy, meant to avoid passing of the stool through large intestine/rectum/anus but created in a manner that stool still passes the natural way, is useless likewise.
I mean, what is the point of ileostoma if you still have to suffer using your anus despite the incontinency? Such surgical logic beats me, and I can't help doubting it.
