Can we talk about diversion colitis?

"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."

Diversion Colitis. 

Not freaking out but what a mind-f*#k!

I got into this mess because of the bleeding. 

Now the cure for the bleeding is causing more bleeding and the cure for that is apparently... wait for it... a reversal. 

What the heck.

Anyone have experience with this?

Much Love

I have Diversion Colitis - colitis from lack of use!  And I have colitis when in use!  So what’s the use?  My dr wanted me to try multiple enemas a day to try and get the diversion colitis to stop.  I couldn’t do it.  I work.  I live.  I don’t feel bad so who cares?  That is probably the attitude that got me my illeostomy in the first place.

I’m sorry to hear that you each are plagued with Diversion Colitis. Sounds awful, although I have no idea exactly what it is.  Time to educate me?  (I have a colostomy necessitated by sigmoid colon destruction by prednisone and 12 cases of diverticulitis.).
