Hello from Hockey cards;
Looking for help.My husband had a temp ileostomy installed April 22 2023 following leakage at anastomosis site from emergency cancer bowel surgery.
He was told all the cancer was removed however in Aug some spots were discovered on the liver.He started chemo in Sept and will continue the series till Dec at which time it will be reviewed.
He has been promised a reversal.
I need some help with the stoma which now has effluent coming out of the top left around 11 o clock area.
Do i take him to the doctor now?Will the new stoma opening enlarge?
The stoma has clean intact skin encircling it and the flange fits well for now.
Could someone please share there experiences or thoughts regarding this strange development?
