I just found this site last night and joined. I'm 59 and had my ileostomy with total rectal removal, on my 18th birthday, 40 years ago! I've had 4 C-Sections during these years...married 33 years, divorced, and dating for the past 6 years! Life has been good!
My only issue recently, probably the last year, has been bleeding and a discharge from my rectum area! What the heck! I thought it was closed! My concern...is this normal? Has anyone on here had similar issues?
This is really weird talking about this...never been on a site like this where I could! I've had my GYN inviestigate the area...only to find a small fistula??? Not sure that is what it is!
Any experience you guys may have had or advice would be appreciated! I am living in Austin Texas now from Ohio and have never had to see a doc in 40 years! Everything has been great! Now I'm concerned! HELP!!!
