My mom had her Ielostomy reversal 7 weeks ago. In December she had a 4" cancerous tumor reomoved above her rectum. She is 63 and has been pretty much bed ridden since. I'm at a loss of what to do with her because she has absolutely no control over her bowel movements and they are still watery, though they are thickening up. She refuses to were Depends because of the rash and she wants to lie down all the time so that her bowels don't empty as quickly.
Any hope of this ending soon or is this the way it's going to be from now on? She's very discouraged.
