My husband just had his surgery for ileostomy reversal 2 weeks ago. After 10 days everything was ok, the movement came after 2 days. Liquid at the beginning and some blood attached, but after 2-3 days was better. Still soft, but normal colour and regular.
After he was suspected to have had an infection where the stoma used to be , he was given antibiotic(tablets- Flucloxacillin) each 6 hours. After the first 2 tablets he started to feel very bad, nausea and started to have liquid stool and was vomiting green stuff. We thought is the bile, due to green colour. We went quickly back to hospital where he had the surgery, they made a chest and belly x-ray immediately. Luckily, everything was ok, only since then - there are 5 days already- the stool is still green, like grass green (as I have seen few comments here). He still has some nausea episodes (not that often as 5 days ago) once a day. They did a CT scan, to be sure that bowels are ok (he had a portion of big bowel still left and was joined with the small bowel). The initial stoma was not due to any disease, but a motorbike accident. The bowels are in good condition and he had no issue in those 14 months , since he had stoma.
I understand the people here had the same green stool, but with stoma. My husband has no stoma anymore- starting 2 weeks ago - but still the stool is liquid and green, as 5 days ago . No improvements, unfortunately. He is afraid to eat solid food, he started today with mash potatoes (yesterday he ate peas and today he found them in his stool, whole, unprocessed )
Any similar experiences ? We really don't know what to do, we are a little scared and the doctors wouldn't tell us more ! They gave him so far penicillin and liquids IV to hydrate him and we are waiting for a change !!
Thank you in advance if someone here can share a similar experience and what he/she did.
