Hi! I'm not new with having a colostomy but, after 24 + years, I still have questions. My reason for having a colostomy is due to cervical and bladder cancer. I developed a fistula due to radiation. Last year, they changed mine from a loop ostomy to an end ostomy. I've had leakage from my vagina since then. No fistula and the Doctor is scratching his head! He's gone in twice to clean it out, to no avail 😢
I also have some drainage from my rectum as well which I've been told is sloughing.
My question is, has anyone experienced this? And at what point does a Dr decide it's time to close off the rectum?
Thanks in advance
