Faecal composition after surgery for Hirschsprung's disease. (1/295)

Diarrhoea and perianal excoriation occur frequently after the endorectal pull-through operation for Hirschsprung's disease. A new method of faecal analysis was performed on 3-day stool collections in 17 postoperative Hirschsprung patients and in 14 normal children, in order to define the faecal abnormality and to establish the cause of perianal excoriation in these patients. Loose stools in postoperative patients were deficient in dry solid content and contained an excess of extractable faecal water. This also had a raised electrolyte concentration, particularly with respect to sodium. Total daily output of faecal water was normal. Formed stools from postoperative patients were also deficient in drysolids but had a normal extractable water content. Excess extractable faecal water, the main abnormality of loose stools in these patients, is the result of abnormal water absorption from the distal colon. Perianal excoriation in these patients is most closely associated with the concentration of sodium in faecal water.  (+info)

Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction: treatment and long term follow up of 44 patients. (2/295)

AIMS: To document the long term course of chronic idiopathic intestinal pseudo-obstruction syndrome (CIIPS) in children with defined enteric neuromuscular disease, and the place and type of surgery used in their management; in addition, to identify prognostic factors. METHODS: Children with CIIPS were investigated and treated prospectively. RESULTS: Twenty four children presented congenitally, eight during the 1st year of life, and 10 later. Twenty two had myopathy and 16 neuropathy (11 familial). Malrotation was present in 16 patients, 10 had short small intestine, six had non-hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, and 16 had urinary tract involvement. Thirty two patients needed long term parenteral nutrition (TPN): for less than six months in 19 and for more than six months in 13, 10 of whom are TPN dependent; 14 are now enteral feeding. Prokinetic treatment improved six of 22. Intestinal decompression stomas were used in 36, colostomy relieved symptoms in five of 11, and ileostomy in 16 of 31. A poor outcome (death (14) or TPN dependence (10)) was seen with malrotation (13 of 16), short small bowel (eight of nine), urinary tract involvement (12 of 16), and myopathic histology (15 of 22). CONCLUSIONS: In CIIPS drugs are not helpful but decompression stomas are. Outcome was poor in 24 of 44 children (15 muscle disorder, 10 nerve disease).  (+info)

Systemic lupus erythematosus with a giant rectal ulcer and perforation. (3/295)

A 41-year-old man with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who developed pelvic inflammation due to perforation of a giant rectal ulcer is described. The patient presented with persistent diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever without development of disease activity of SLE. Endoscopic and radiological examinations revealed a perforated giant ulcer on the posterior wall at the rectum below the peritoneal evagination. The ulcerated area was decreased after a colostomy was performed at the transverse colon to preserve anal function. The patient is currently being monitored on an outpatient basis. It should be noted that life-threatening complications such as perforated ulcer of the intestinal tract could occur without SLE disease activity.  (+info)

Sacral chordoma--a case report. (4/295)

Closure of colostomy. (5/295)

We analyzed the records of 77 cases of loop colostomy closure in Vietnam War Casualties. All records were complete from the date of injury to discharge following colostomy closure. Simple of the loop colostomy was performed in 44 patients and resection of the stoma and reanastomosis of bowel segments was performed in 33 patients. Average operating time for simple closure of the loop was 70 minutes compared to 115 minutes for resection and anastomosis. Nasogastric suction was used less frequently and for a shorter time with simple loop closure. The total postoperative complication rate was 9% with simple loop closure as compared to 24% for resection and anastomosis. Simple closure of the loop described in this report is technically easier and as safe as resection of the stoma and reanastomosis.  (+info)

Effect of elective abdominal surgery on human colon protein synthesis in situ. (6/295)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of elective abdominal surgery on the rate of human colon fractional protein synthesis in situ. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Efficient intestinal protein synthesis plays an important role in the physiology and pathophysiology of the intestinal tract, allowing preservation of gut integrity and thereby preventing bacterial or endotoxin translocation. Because of species differences, animal studies have only limited applicability to human intestinal protein metabolism, and because of methodologic restrictions, no studies on colon protein synthesis in situ are available in humans. METHODS: The authors used advanced mass spectrometry techniques (capillary gas chromatography and combustion isotope ratio mass spectrometry) to determine directly the incorporation rate of 1-[13C]-leucine into colon mucosal protein in control subjects and nonseptic postoperative patients. All subjects had a colostomy, which allowed easy access to the colon mucosa, and consecutive sampling from the same tissue was performed during continuous isotope infusion (0.16 micromol/kg per minute). RESULTS: Control subjects demonstrated a colon protein fractional synthetic rate of 0.74 +/- 0.09% per hour. In postsurgical patients, colon protein synthesis was significantly higher and the tissue free leucine enrichment was significantly lower, compatible with an increased colon proteolytic rate. CONCLUSIONS: Elective abdominal surgery followed by an uncomplicated postoperative course is associated with a stimulation of colon protein synthesis and possibly also of protein degradation. The postoperative rate of colon protein synthesis is, compared with other tissues, among the highest measured thus far in humans.  (+info)

Importance of the fecal stream on the induction of colon tumors by azoxymethane in rats. (7/295)

The effect of the fecal stream on intestinal carcinogenesis with azoxymethane was studied in male rats. Colostomies were performed approximately 2 cm distal to the cecum in 50 Sprague-Dawley rats to produce a 20-cm segment of nonfunctional large bowel; an additional 50 animals were left intact. Each of these groups was divided equally and was fed a normal diet or a diet containing 2% cholestyramine by weight. All animals were given azoxymethan s.c. At the end of 7 months all rats were sacrificed. The animals with colostomies developed significantly fewer tumors in the defunctionalized bowel than did intact animals in the same bowel segment. Cholestyramine appeared to increase the tumor yield in the large bowel of the intact animals but had no effect on the number of tumors in the defunctionalized bowel. Further, the intact animals on both dietary regimens developed a greater number of large tumors in the distal 20 cm of bowel. The results show that the fecal stream alters the carcinogenic activity of azoxymethane in the large bowel of the rat. It also appears that the carcinogen can reach its target tissue by a route other than the fecal stream.  (+info)

Gastrocolic and gastrojejunocolic fistulae: report of twelve cases and review of the literature. (8/295)

Seven gastrocolic and five gastrojejunocolic fistulae were recorded at Charity Hospital between 1940 and 1970. Such fistulae occurred in males more often than females. In this series, as in others, the most common cause was gastric surgery for peptic ulcer disease. Pain, diarrhea, and weight loss were clinical findings in half the patients; anemia, leukocytosis, electrolyte disturbances and hypoalbuminemia were common laboratory findings. A fistula was demonstrated radiologically in nine of the twelve patients, management of these patients included no operation (3); two-stage procedure (2); and one-stage procedure (7); with a recent trend toward the one-stage procedure. A case report of a fistula resulting from postoperative complications of perforative appendicitis in which a successful combination of hyperalimentation and diverting colostomy was used is presented.  (+info)

After a surgeon has removed the diseased part of your bowel during an operation called a bowel resection, he or she will then sew the two healthy ends of your bowel back together. Sometimes the bowel tissue needs more time to heal before the reattachment, so a temporary colostomy is needed. Sometimes the entire lower colon or rectum is removed because it is diseased. In those cases, the colostomy will be permanent.. To perform a colostomy, the surgeon makes an opening through the skin on your abdomen and connects your bowel to that opening.

The stomas were reversed an average of 4 months (range 32 days - 14 months) after discharge from the burns unit. Time spent in hospital was on average 1.9 days per % TBSA and ranged from 13 to 168 days (mean 67 days).. Complications directly attributable to colostomy were few and minor (5 patients, 11.1%). A prophylactic colostomy was performed in error in 1 child, where the wound depth was misassessed. Three patients required manual reduction of stoma prolapse. The colostomy bags also leaked on a number of occasions. One patient developed adhesive bowel obstruction 3 months after closure which required a laparotomy. Eight children had to be transferred from the burns ward to the intensive care unit for treatment of systemic sepsis from their unhealed and infected perineal burn wounds.. The genital area generally healed well. Two penises required surgical intervention: 1 was treated with standard circumcision; and 1 had a dorsal slit performed. No testes were lost, although the size of the ...
A colostomy is a surgical procedure that is done when part of the large intestine (colon or rectum) has been removed and the remaining bowel cannot function normally. The colostomy may be temporary, until the colon or rectum heals, or it may be permanent if the entire lower colon or rectum was removed. In colostomy...
The type of approach used depends on what other procedure needs to be done. The surgical cut is usually made in the middle of the abdomen. The bowel resection or repair is done as needed.. For the colostomy, one end of the healthy colon is brought out through an opening made in the abdomen wall, usually on the left side. The edges of bowel are stitched to the skin of opening. This opening is called a stoma. A bag called a stoma appliance is placed around the opening to allow stool to drain.. Your colostomy may be short-term. If you have surgery on part of your large intestine, a colostomy allows the other part of your intestine to rest while you recover. Once your body has fully recovered from the first surgery, you will have another surgery to reattach the ends of the large intestine. This is usually done after 12 weeks.. ...

After a colostomy you can expect to feel better and stronger each day, but you may get tired quickly at first. Your belly may be sore, and you will probably need pain medicine for a week or two. Your stoma will be swollen at first. This is normal.. You may have very loose stools in your colostomy bag for a while. In time your stools may become firmer, but they will be less solid than before your surgery. You may also have a lot of gas pass into your colostomy bag in the weeks after surgery. This will decrease as you heal.. How quickly you get better depends, in part, on whether you had a laparoscopic or open surgery. But you will probably need at least 6 weeks to get back to your normal routine. ...

An hour later I had washed him out, resected the colon with the gaping hole, and fashioned an end colostomy. Primary anastomosis was not a consideration given the degree of contamination and pressor sustained systolics in the 80s. We call it the Hartmanns procedure; an old school operation that is not used as often as it once was. We found that it isnt always so easy to reverse a colostomy (70% success rate) and the procedure itself can result in significant morbidity. Nowadays we find we can treat many cases of perforated diverticulitis medically with antibiotics alone. Primary anastomosis is performed even on unprepped bowel in cases of mild contamination and hemodynamic stability. Sometimes you can even get away with just laparoscopically washing out the pelvis, placing some drains, and bringing the patient back later on, for definitive one stage surgery, once the sepsis clears. Lots of options. But there is still a role for the Hartmanns procedure. Four or five times a year I find myself ...
That ^ is what I got instead of surgery, for Six. Weeks. In case you missed it, after chemo on Wednesday (16th), a couple of hours later, my colostomy prolapsed. These are the basics of a prolapse, and no worries, no pics.. A prolapse is much more psychologically damaging than physical. This is not at all uncommon in colostomy or ileostomy, but no one prepares you for the possibility either, which is why you end up so damn shocked, and dealing with all the mental and emotional fallout. It would be most helpful if medical would prepare for this possibility, and yes, I know theres no desire to alarm people, but thats a bullshit excuse in this case. Being forewarned, just in case, would go a long way in making a prolapse less traumatic.. First thing: When Prolapse Happens: DONT PANIC.. *:Graphic descriptors begin: When the pain reached a point where I lifted up my shirt in the car to see what was going on, I saw six very fat inches of my colon protruding, completely filling the bag, and rather ...

Irrigating your colostomy is a way to keep yourself free from bowel movements for 24 to 48 hours. Many patients are put off by the procedure at first, but with practice it can become part of your routine. Advantages of irrigation are freedom of movement (after irrigation, you wont need your colostomy pouch for a day), more comfort, less gas, less odor, less diarrhea, less constipation, and less skin irritation.

HotSpot Media | A woman who battled aggressive bowel cancer has started a fashion blog offering style tips for those living with a colostomy bag. Suzanne Doré, 42, of Rayne, Essex, discovered that dressing in the wrong type of clothes led to unfortunate mishaps, including a leaking bag - so she launched blog Gladrags and Bags last month to share her style tips with others. After five years with a colostomy bag - and a growing love for clothes - Suzanne has picked up some helpful ways to dress comfortably, yet fashionably.
Filtered colostomy bags is a subject I have not been able to find any information on. I am looking for a colostomy bag/pouch with a charcoal filter system that actually works.

Doctors give unbiased, helpful information on indications, contra-indications, benefits, and complications: Dr. Proffitt on should i follow a special diet after colostomy surgery: After a colostomy you can eat anything you want but i would emphasize a high fiber diet because it makes the output more manageable.
I was 49 when I got my colostomy. Was married at the time, but that fell apart and I found myself single again which is not my favorite status.. Managing to live with colostomy is not easy and has to be addressed at multiple levels.. Find a good pouch. My favorite is Coloplast open ended with filter. I use one a day, put it on sideways with the opening to the side held by my tucked in shirt. This way if I have to let out gas I just pull out my shirt there and take care of it. Diet: I personally cannot have any raw veggies, fruits and spicy food anymore. I basically eat soups, chicken, fish, cold cuts, cheese, rise pasta. Try to it as little fiber as possible to reduce the amount of output even dough fiber is suppose to be good for us. To refuse gas and acidity I take 8-10 charcoal capsules a day which I find very beneficial. This absorbs all the gases and odors and happy to report that if I have a little leak in the pouch, my poop doesnt stink that much at all lol.. All the best. ...
Did you know colostomies can be reversed? Basically, I needed the colostomy in the first place because it was my big bowel that was damaged, so they fitted the stoma while it was mending, to take all pressure off digestion in that area, Kayleigh explains. I was lucky that I wasnt so injury that I healed well enough to have the reversal, otherwise it would have been permanent.. So now shes back to her normal-poopin self. Well, mostly.. That very first turd, after not pooping at all for like six months or something, that was really, really weird, she tells. Those poops were like teeny and white. They did advise me that might be the case, because it would be likely that there had just been some sitting in there the entire time, just waiting to come out and theyd like, I dont know, kind of crystallized? . But its one thing to be told that and quite another to see it staring out at you from the toilet.. Once she got over that initial shock, there was a new problem to contend with: It ...

I know you are scared and nervous. We all were. You will get through this because you are a strong woman. I was dianosed Stage III rectal cancer in Sept 06 at age 32. I have a permanent colostomy. It takes some getting used to, but it is no big deal. Make up your mind right now that you refuse to let you life be dictated by sh*t!!! You are just going to have a septic tank instead of a sewer. If you can meet with an ET nurse before surgery. The best thing I did was have her put a bag on me and send me out into the world to live with for a day. I quickly realized it was not noticeable at all under my clothes and no one knew it was there. My colostomy does not prevent me from doing anything that I previously did, except maybe make mad dashes to bathrooms at a moments notice (dont miss that part at all). I have lots of tips and would be happy to answer any questions pertaining to colostomy if you would like to email me. I will keep you in my prayers for a successful surgery and quick ...
Why this is important:- No recent randomised controlled trials were identified that fully address this question. The evidence is old and does not reflect current practice. In addition, in most of the studies the patients are sedated before regional anaesthesia is administered, and this is not taken into account when analysing the results. The study design for the proposed research would be best addressed by a randomised controlled trial. This would ideally be a multi-centre trial including 3000 participants in each arm. This is achievable given that there are about 70,000 to 75,000 hip fractures a year in the UK. The study should have three arms that look at spinal anaesthesia versus spinal anaesthesia plus sedation versus general anaesthesia; this would separate those with regional anaesthesia from those with regional anaesthesia plus sedation. The study would also need to control for surgery, especially type of fracture, prosthesis and grade of surgeon ...
also called |b>AP resection or APR|/b>. A type of surgery for rectal cancer, in which 2 cuts are made, one in the abdomen (belly), and the other around the anus. This allows removal of the anus and tissues around it. A permanent colostomy is needed after this surgery. See also |b>abdomen|/b>, |b>anus|/b>, |b>colostomy|/b>,|b> rectum|/b>.
Bowel resection requires general anesthesia. You may stay in the hospital for 4 to 7 days or as long as 2 weeks after surgery.. Sometimes the two parts of the colon or rectum cannot be reattached, so the surgeon performs a colostomy. This creates an opening, called a stoma, on the outside of the body for the stool, or feces, to pass through into a colostomy bag. Usually the colostomy is temporary, until the colon or rectum heals. If the lower part of the rectum has been removed, the colostomy is permanent. Most people who have colon cancer dont need a colostomy.. Treatment after bowel resection may include radiation therapy and chemotherapy, in case there are any cancer cells remaining. Radiation therapy uses X-rays to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy uses drugs-given either as pills or through a needle-to kill them.. Follow-up care is important because colorectal cancer can come back after surgery, especially if it was not discovered when it was in an early stage.. ...

In most cases, surgery is required to achieve a complete cure. Rectal cancer surgery involves removing the portion of rectum containing the cancer along with its associated lymph nodes. The colon is then connected to the rectum. If the rectal cancer is very low in the rectum or is attached to the anal sphincter it may not be possible to connect the intestine together and a permanent colostomy is needed. A colostomy is an opening of the intestine into a bag on the skin.. A number of different techniques can be used to perform rectal cancer surgery. North Texas Colon and Rectal associates specialize in minimally invasive techniques including laparoscopy and robotic surgery. Minimally invasive techniques that result in less pain and shorter recovery time.. Occasionally the rectal cancer is caught very early and can be removed through the anus and without an incision in the abdomen. This is called a transanal local excision. North Texas Colon and Rectal associates also specialize in minimally ...
I have decided to have a permanent colostomy and the hospital called me today and it is booked for 2 weeks time. This doesnt give me a lot of time to adjust, but as my husband said, it was a decision I made a long time ago - now its a matter of going through the process and dealing with a new lifestyle after. I have had two anal sphincter repairs, one temporary colostomy, the sacral nerve stimulator and physio. All to no avail. When the anal area is on fire, I use Panadeine because the codeine kills two problems. I try to avoid the latter for reasons of potential addiction, but when Im desperate I resort to that. ...

I was driving around the internet at 130 in the morning as you do when I came across a petition on change.org. The petition is asking the CDC to stop airing an ad in which a smoker develops colon cancer and discusses wearing a colostomy bag. Here are some quotes from the salient portions:. In this ad she refers to having to wear a colostomy bag for a year which is smelly and because she fears leaks she doesnt leave her home. This may or may not deter people from smoking, but in the meantime, unnecessarily sheds negative light on people with ostomies.. The negative stigma that is spread by this ad is itself a health threat. Fear of being stigmatized, including the extreme negative body image that our society has placed on those with ostomies…. …it sends the wrong message to the general public, at a time when those of us who have permanent ostomies are trying to educate others about this condition.. I have a lot of feelings about this.. The first is that yes, I agree that ostomies are ...

Peace and Prayer,. My personal experience so far (and this is only my personal experience) is the people who I have met who complain about having an ostomy (either ileo or colo) seemed to have had a fairly normal life up to the point that some complication caused a need for their ostomy (cancer, injury or such). Those of us who in fact led some pretty rough lives prior to getting our ostomies (Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns disease, incontinence and such) seem to cope with it better (again just from my experiences). Leaks are a reality but once a person finds what works for them, gets a routine that prevents from using an appliance beyond its limit, and just generally gets used to what things to be prepared for it becomes a very normal way of life. There is still a possibility, even with a prepared ostomate, that some situation beyond their control will happen but with preperation that is a very rare. It sounds like your chances of having accidents with a colostomy would be incredibly smaller ...

The patient remained hospitalized for 14 days after the surgery. No supplementary nutrition was required, as the patient did not tolerate feeding for the maximum period of four days. No blood transfusion was required. Leucocytosis occurred after the sixth postoperative day, secondary to a left iliac fossa wall collection near the colostomy. This collection was treated with percutaneous drainage guided by ultrasound and use of Vancomycin and Meropenem. Histology showed an adenocarcinoma that invaded the muscularis propria, and the lymph nodes were free of neoplasm. In the prostate, fibrotic tissue was identified, but no signs of adenocarcinoma after the adjuvant treatment. The margins were not affected (R0). Four postoperative chemotherapy cycles were scheduled.. The total surgical time was seven hours and thirty minutes, with five hours and thirty minutes only for the laparoscopic procedure. The procedure was well tolerated by the patient, without any significant reduction of hemoglobin or blood ...

The patient underwent a removal of her gallbladder performed by a general surgeon. Five days post operatively she was admitted with a diagnosis of sepsis. A subsequent surgery found perforations of both her large and small intestines. She was hospitalized for several months and required multiple further surgeries and a permanent colostomy. She claimed damages for lifetime pain and suffering and extensive lost wages due to her inability to return to work. Plaintiff claimed that the number and extent of the perforations proved that the first surgery was performed negligently and that the surgeon missed obvious perforations prior to closing. Experts in surgery and pathology were called by both sides. A retired Superior Court Judge ruled in favor of the defense. This was the third bowel perforation case defensed by Jim and Hannah this year.. ...

One of the known risks of abdominal surgery is infection, and like all infections, the earlier the treatment the better the outcome. A man presented to the emergency room a week and a half after a colostomy closure surgery. When the man presented to the emergency room, he had obvious signs of infection and an abdominal problem that would require surgery. There was an initial delay in calling for a surgeon. Then, a sequence of surgeons had to be called before any surgeon agreed to come to the hospital to operate on the man. As a result, there was a delay of over eight hours in starting the emergency operation which was needed to treat the infection and its cause. Due to the delay, the infection spread and the patient did not survive. View All Results ...

Press Release issued Apr 15, 2015: Ostomy refers to a surgically made opening (stoma) in the body for the excretion of waste products such as stools, mucus, and urine. Ostomy is helpful in the treatment of intestinal and bladder diseases. An ostomy can be a temporary or permanent procedure, depending on the type of condition and the needs of patients. There are three types of ostomy: colostomy, ileostomy, and urostomy. Ostomy products include ostomy bags/pouches and ostomy care accessories. Ostomy bag is used to collect waste and is placed outside a patients body. Ostomy care accessories are used to manage the needs of ostomates by enhancing the performance and comfort of ostomy bags. These accessories help provide skin care for the peristomal region, prevent leakage of the ostomy bag contents, and deodorize the contents.
I am glad to say I have done neither. Some of the really interesting moments were dealing with massive upper GI bleed post Whipple with Dr Aseervatham and Priscilla, massive lower GI bleeding from radiation proctitis with Thushara, a couple of open splenectomy with Dr Grieve and Dr Aseervatham, laparoscopic assisted small bowel resection for closed-loop SBO with Scott, a laparotomy and adhesiolysis with Dr Donovan, and a perforated diverticulitis with Priscilla and Peter. Every surgeon has a unique way of operating and i have learned so much from all of them. Dr Aseervatham is very particular about techniques, and always tells me to learn how to operate with both hands to the point where i forget which hand is dominant. One night, he had to come in to do laparotomy for upper GI bleed post Whipple. We started at around 10pm and finished at 2.30am. This was followed by a Hartmann procedure for a 120kg man with LBO. We started at 3.30am and ended up finishing at 6am. He had been up for 24 hours, ...
Stomas are the cellular structures that control the hydric balance of the plant, the macro and micronutrient absorption and the absorption of gases. The opening of the stomas is controlled by both external factors (light, humidity, temperature and salt concentration) and internal factors (amino acids concentration, abcisic acid etc.).. The Stomas are closed when light and humidity are low & temperature and salt concentration are high, when stomas are closed photosynthesis and transpiration are reduced (low absorption of macro & micronutrients) and respiration is increased (Carbohydrate destruction) In this case the metabolic balance of the plant is negative. Catabolism is higher than anabolism. This implies slow metabolism and stops the plant growth. L-glutamic acid acts as a cytoplasm osmotic agent of the guard cells. Thus favouring the opening of the stomas.. ...
When an infant is born with an anorectal malformation, it is usually detected quickly as it is a very obvious defect. Doctors will then determine the type of birth defect the child was born with and whether or not there are any associated malformations. It is important to determine the presence of any associated defects during the newborn period in order to treat them early and avoid further sequelae. There are two main categories of anorectal malformations: those that require a protective colostomy and those that do not. The decision to open a colostomy is usually taken within the first 24 hours of birth.. Sonography can be used to determine the type of imperforate anus.[6]. ...
Restoration of bowel continuity after Hartmanns procedure is considered technically challenging and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. This is the main reason why restoration of intestinal continuity is often not attempted. Over the past decade, considerable international experience has gained on this topic with new minimally invasive techniques being developed. This review details the evolution of minimally invasive techniques in restoration of colonic continuity after Hartmanns procedure. A comprehensive search of PubMed and Embase was done. Different restoration modalities were included. Eight studies, from six different countries, in which multiport laparoscopic restoration of continuity was compared to conventional open restoration of bowel continuity, were included. In the total of 254 patients, continuity was restored laparoscopically compared with 255 patients in which continuity was performed in open fashion. Restoration of bowel continuity via trephine access was also reported;

My name is Shannon, Im 30 and have had an Ostomy since 27. I was told that because I had to have my Spleen removed, the year before that it wasnt their to keep the natural E-coli that is in our bowls in check, and that it is what caused me to have a syptic episode which ended up leaving me with a Colostomy and full Hysterectomy at the young age of 27. I kept the Colo for 6 months then had the reversal, but 2 months later ended up with the Ileostomy that I have now. What I am wondering is how many others out there also dont have their Spleens? Is this a legitament reason for what happened or is there more to it and the doctors just cant explain. I have had my ostomy now for over 2 years and to be honest Im scared to have another reversal and end up back with the Colostomy. I can say that after having them both I prefer the Ileo, it still sucks dont get me wrong but its diffenately the lesser of to evils. Are other of you out there looking for answers?
