I am new to OstoMate and just a bit shy about asking questions. But from what I have read, I know I shouldn't be concerned about asking any question, so here it is:
Soon after my ileostomy surgery in 2013, I was informed that about every six months a discharge of "mucus" would occur. This happened. About a year later this discharge became more frequent, where I experienced the discharge once per month. Then the discharge happened once per week until it began happening almost every day. Frequently there is blood in the discharge. Before the discharge, the feeling sends me to the bathroom, sometimes in a hurry. And I thought those days were over!
The doctor said I have colitis and prescribed an enema, Mesalamine Rectal Suspension. Sometimes this helps, other times it does not help.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
