Hey everyone, I've had my ileostomy for almost three months. But I've developed a complication that, from what I can find, only develops when colon is resected while in active infection. It's a fistula. Now I can find a ton of info on fistulas online. What I can't find is the type of fistula I have apparently developed. It's from my resectioned colon to my rectum. My original surgeon has asked me to get a second opinion and stated that he doesn't understand it and has never seen anything like it and doesn't feel comfortable performing my reversal. Has anyone else developed fistulas as complications? What was done about it? And more specifically, has anyone developed the one like I've got cause in can't find any info about it at all. You can view my profile for complete details of what I've had to go thru. Thx in advance!
