She suffered a volvulus jan 2013. She had the offending section removed an the bowel rejoined. Unfortunately the join leaked and require a second operation to clean her out and an ileostomy undertaken. She was very ill before second operation due to infevtion.
thank you doctor thomas.I neglected to say she is in hospital and awaiting a doctor to see her.she has been in the hospital since her reversion operation done on the 13th June 2014. I have only just learnt from her of the problem so was concerned as we have been given little feedback from the nursing staff and have not been able to talk to a doctor. she willbe seeing her consultant surgeon in the morning but so far she has not seen the hospital doctor as yet.
thank you Dr Thomas - first class assistance.
I am prepared now for the worse outcome in that my wife may as yet be subject to yet another operation which will distress her so much.
Thank you again.
She has just received an anal inspection - it may be since colon has been inactive for 12months plus it may just be colitus but she will be monitored overnight and see her Consultant surgeon in the morning. Feel a little easier we do now.
I will sign off now.
Many thanks again
Not a concern of the Consultant - this can happen and is a result of stapling during the anastomosis procedure. today the bleeding has ceased but obviously she will be monitored over next 24 hours or so. all other functions appear normal except for some spiking in her temperature which may be due to a slight urinary tract infection. we are keeping out fingers crossed.
many thanks - greatly appreciated.
