Mine was emergcency surgery. YOu probably read on the CD site or here on this one. Mine is a temp ileostomy so I still have 2/3 of my colon and since it is temp they didnt sew my bum up. I do have urges to poo the normal way very rarely. what comes out is just mucus like fluid. I have had a couple issues with my flange leaking but that is because the flange overlaps the wound vac dressing. Hopefully I wont have the vac much longer my wound is about
3/4 a cm wide now and about
the same in depth. The length however is still about
10cm. I haven't been able to see any internal sutures for a few weeks now though!
