poopydoop: I remember it well, had a stool could not get out,was hard had a lot of rectal pain, finally
i shot a little vegie oil up there and got it out. But by that time it had ripped a hole in my rectum. Was a hard dry stool I probably had not drank enough water. After that I spiked 103.5 temp for a day or two, felt sicker and sicker
was getting weaker, had a lot of back and kidney pain. Then heart rate started to get wacky. Then went to
the ER. Then had cat scan, blood work ect, they said your not going anywhere. Surgical team had a few meetings, and emergency surgery at 1 AM. Got to a room about
8 I guess and talks with my nurse for
a few hours, got a little sleep. Then wheeled to the surgery,remember electronically signing consent,and
them putting a gas mask on me. Next thing I woke up with no pain,the muscle/gut spams started the next night. Finally saw my surgeon for the first time in the AM. young women. I thought to myself, she cut me up. I was expecting an old guy, go figure. I still have full anal sphincter control, not good for anything
but I have it. Yes had stool bacteria or even perhaps stool inside my body cavity,that area is sterile, so
bacteria getting past the peritoneum,not good. I have almost a full length colon, and a rectal stump.
Lets see what else. Had 3 home care nurses, pt to make sure I was up and around and walking good, a PT hand nurse for the nerve damage in the hand, special exercises for Ulnar nerve, then of course the ostomy nurse.
