Good morning! Two weeks ago on the 15 of May, my husband had a ostomy/colostomy reversal. We really had a hard time at first - he had his original surgery on Feb 6 for colon resection, then had a major complication. On Feb 15,we had to have a ostomy bag placed on him during to dead intestine. Now, 3 months post -op of 2nd surgery, we had his 3rd & finally colon resection surgery. He's doing fine BUT he had an infection in both of his incisions - one in his colon cut & in his ostomy. He has a WOUND VAC therapy on him & I was wondering if anyone has had this experience and may be able to tell me how long it took for the pain to stop, for the wound to heal.... I honestly, can't tell you how long & how deep his wound it.... Of one, I'm not good at guessing measurements & two, I didn't ask his home health nurse when they changed the wound yesterday.
