Hi everyone, I had a hemi colectomy done 3 weeks ago, and i have a colostomy bag. I wa transferred from the hospital in the capital city back to my local hospital after the surgery and discharged from the local hospital. Well now it turns out i have mrsa in the stoma site. I am seeing a specialist nurse tomorrow to discuss it. Just wondering if anyone ever had this and if so, is it very serious or easily treatable, thanks.
dx with crohns in 1999.
Fistulotomy operation in 2001.
tried pentasa, imuran, infliximab - all have failed.
Currently on predisone steroids, calcichew, ciprixon, folic acid.
Waiting to speak to surgeon now about next step to deal with crohns - ileostomy looking a possibility.
