Hello, I am new to this. I had my surgery for my colostomy on Monday, 20/06/2022. I am still learning. Every day is another step closer to recovering.
One of the main reasons I had to have a colostomy is colonic dysmotility. My bowel does not contract, and I have no peristalsis, meaning the waste cannot be removed. It just stays in my colon. After various tests and grueling treatment, the only thing left was for me to have a colostomy. Since my colostomy is only 5 days old, I just need a bit of advice on output. I am still on a soft food diet. My output is very watery and almost resembles dark urine. Just wondering if anyone else experienced this in the early days?
