Hello Everyone

I had surgery on 1/12/18

I recently noticed that there is leakage from my bottom. I have no fever, no chills and no pain. Just moisture. It feels like more than sweat and it smells

Any thoughts? I am waiting to hear back from my doctor as we speak

Good that you're getting it checked out. Several of us including myself have leakage of some sort. Let us know what your doctor says.

You have a loop ostomy? If so, it's normal for your intestines to still produce mucus that can leak. I'm two years after takedown and I have night time leaks on and off

My husband went 2 years after loop ileostomy, due to poor healing, the ostomy never reversed. Last week, he started leaking stool from his rectum. With an enema a large amount of hard stool and mucus came out. Doctor did a flexsigmoidoscopy and said the bowel was healthy, but that a lot of stool had leaked down the intestine side of the loop.

After my colectomy I still had leakage. It started in the hospital post surgery, I was there for 2 weeks after. Then it was once in a while. After being sent home, it started to come more frequent. Turned out what little bit of rectum I had was still suffering from ulcerative colitis. For me it did not stop until I had my rectum removed.
