I had my End Ileostomy Surgery 6/16/20 and I had the scare of my life about 2 weeks ago. My stoma prolapsed (at the time I had no idea what the correct name of this was) and it was very frightening because I truly thought a snake had crawled up in my pouch and was moving around 😳🙈🙈
my husband rushed me to the ER because we had no idea what was going on and believe it or not the ER Staff was just as TERRIFIED as I was! Long story short they put ice on my stoma and after about 2.5 hours my stoma retracted.
I am so scared of this happening again my surgeon said he can go in and put a mesh over my stoma but he would have to open me up 🙈🙈🙈 does anyone have any advice? Has this happened to anyone else? If so what did you do?
