Does this mean you have an ostomy?

Hello dawolfe.

The definition of an ostomy is:--an artificial opening in an organ of the body, created during an operation such as a colostomy, ileostomy, or gastrostomy; a stoma.

Colonic inertia describes the slow movement of matter through system and does not necessarily mean that a stoma exists. (see link below)

I hope you find this helpful.

Best wishes

You can have an ostomy (generally ileostomy) BECAUSE of colonic inertia! That is why I have mine, along with pelvic floor issues and some other things.

Hi Vicki,

I replied to you last week.  Did you receive it?

Hi Dolores,

No, I didn't receive a reply. I would love to hear from you so hopefully you can try again Smile

 

Take care,, Vicki

I, too, have colonic inertia.  I was diagnosed last year in August.  I can't imagine living the rest of my life like this.... Let me know if you get this message.

Hi Dolores,

Sorry to take so long to get back to you. I actually tried yesterday, but after a long explanation I accidently hit some key that wiped out the whole thing. I had to leave the site and take a deep breath Smile

I'm with you... couldn't imagine living the rest of my life with colonic inertia. I don't know if you have pelvic floor damage because of it too but I agree, it's miserable. PLUS to think it could become progressively worse, put me over the edge. I couldn't imagine what was happening to my body because of holding the toxins in for such long periods of time.

I had a "loop ileostomy" on February 2nd, so in the scheme of things I'm pretty new and certainly still learning! Have you had a sitz-marker test? Are you considering the surgery or working with a surgeon or specialist?

Let me know if you have any specific questions OR even need moral support!

Take care of yourself... as in everything else, we have to become our own advocate. There are a lot of liittle things I wish I could have anticipated ~ of course knowing what I know now.

Best regards,

Vicki
