I normally float about reading all the posts trying to get as much info as possible before hubby had his ileostomy surgery. 
Hubby had his surgery today (wednesday) and he was in recovery for a short time and they had to rush him back into the OR with a major bleed.  Has anyone else had this happen and if so how has it effected your recovery.  Any feedback would be appreciated as I want to be prepared as possible.

So sorry to hear of your husbands complications. I've had many surgeries and never had that happen. At least he was rushed back in right away, he won't have to recover twice. Hope everything goes well from here on out. Keep us posted.

I have had 4 intestinal surgeries and this has never been the case. My surgeries went well. I am sorry that I cannot help you. I wanted to reply to your message so you knew that it was being read and that others are thinking of you and your husband during this challenging time.

Please keep the forum posted on his progress.

Thank you,

I'm so sorry to hear of your husband's complications, but at least it was caught right away. I'm sure it was probably due to a leaking vessel that wasn't noticed before closing. That's why they watch you so closely after surgery, especially your blood pressure which can show if you're having blood loss after surgery. Recovery wise, I wouldn't think it would change anything much.

Hubby is making nice progress, they took him off the ventilator and he was moved out of ICU and into the Step down Unit earlier tonight. I had a chance to have a good chat with the surgeon today and she indicated that he is making good progress considering what he had been through and did not see this set back as adding to his recovery which was nice to hear.
Thank you for your responses.
