For those of us with a permanent ostomy who elected to have their rectum & annus removed. I have this question!
Prior to my surgery in 2018 to get a permanent colostomy, my Surgeon explained to me why he believed I should elect to remove my rectum/annus was due to 'mucous plug'. I did in fact elect to have my rectum/annus removed so that my mucous plug would not leak out and cause a mess.
Now that I had this done, what happens to the 'mucous plug' in my body? Does my body absorb the mucous?
i appreciate your responses!
