This past year my mother passed away at the age of 95. I cared for her for the last 16 years. I lived with her in her home she bought in 1968 so there was a lot to move and liquidate to vacate the house in order to sell it. I had 3 weekend garage sales, many trips to charities, disbursements for family, yard cleanup and on and on. I had help but it was my responsibility to get it done and to get out by the date the house was put on the market.
It was a lot of work and I also had to make arrangements for what I wanted to keep and where to store it not knowing where I was going to live so I didn't know what I need or not and I still don't. I'm currently renting a room while I wait for the house to sell before I have the money for a place of my own.
Through all this stress and physical activity my stoma scar from having my osteomy reversed is now bleeding. It's bleeding enough that my undergarments are stained everyday even though I'm not as active as I was during the move.
I have a hernia on the opposite side that I have surgery planned for. Also when I got my reversal it took awhile for my stoma to heal as I contracted MYRSA on the site that took 2 treatment rounds before it closed completely, about 2 months.
I want to know if anyone has any insight on how this happened after all this time and how to treat it. I realize it was the stress and the strain of lifting too much and overdoing it but that couldn't be helped. I didn't know it was so delicate.
