I see this is an older thread and wonder if anyone checks on it.
I had my surgery on 8/31/17 and up until recently I’ve had a lot of discharge and was told this was normal because of where the tumor is and where I had the radiation. Lately I’ve had what I say was passing gas and I had a lot of discharge. Then tonight I saw on my Depends (I wear them because of all the discharge I’ve been having) what looked like a small amount diarrhea but it didn’t smell at all. I’ve been having problems lately with my stomach, been pancaking a lot and having to change out my entire system sometimes as much as twice a day because of it.
I’ve tried changing my diet but so far I’m still pancaking and now this. I believe I had a loop colostomy, my surgeon told me he did a temporary loop but when I go for the surgery for the tumor they were going to make it permanent. Not quite sure the reasoning behind all that but that’s what was done.
I got a bit nervous when I saw what looked like diarrhea but after reading a bit on here I’m not as worried. I’ll still talk to my Dr about
this when I see him next week. It’s never happened before and I assumed nothing like this would happen other than something going terribly wrong with the colostomy.
