I am a 35 year old female with a temporary ileostomy. Was diagnosed with colon cancer due to HNPCC syndrome. I had complete hysterectomy and colorectomy. Unfortunately I developed a leak and peritonitis and ended up with the ostomy. I am getting ready to have it reversed and was wondering if leaks develop from the reversal of ostomies. If anyone knows or has experience with this situation I would appreciate any info.
I had my ileostomy reversed 6 months after surgery for rectal cancer. Had no problems with leaks or anything. For a week or so I had almost no advance warning of bowel movements but that problem resolved itself fairly soon and I was so happy to be rid of the bag that I didn't mind.
I was given a temporary ilestomy with stoma bag due to having a surgical repair to my small intestines. Reason I had a small amount of damage due to endometriosis. The doctors repaired intestines & it would'nt stop bleeding. I was loosing to much blood after surgery, so they gave me temp ileostomy, this gave small intestines time to heal. They did the reversal 8 months later. Now it's been 2 months & I am still having a very difficult time when eating red meat, fried foods and other things.
i had a reversal of my iliostomy 2 weeks ago. In that surgery they needed to repair a hernia that had developed near my stoma. It is still so painful and is popping out of my stomach. (it looks like a hill) Has anyone else ever experinced this?
