I do not know which way to turn, regarding both my resection in October last year and my Ileostomy reversal 4 weeks ago.
Since the reversal I have had severe Diarrhoea and now been diagnosed as Haemorrhoids.
I was going toilet 30 or more times, daily and had a lot of accidents. Now managed to reduce this to 18 to 20 times by taking Loperamide 2.0mg 8 times a day.
Almost housebound as unable to stray far from a loo and had an accident going to the Doctors which was embarrassing.
Also slowly increasing my fibre and small diet changes suggested by my Colorectal nurse.
Now been given a number, of different creams by my GP to help with the burning sensation and the pain is a bad, as the operation itself now.
I have spoken to my Stoma Nurse but have referred me to my Colorectal Nurse, the advice given was to consult my GP. But my GP has said to speak to the Colorectal Clinician.
Now just going around in circles and wish I had never had the Resection or any of the operations and let the Cancer take its course.
What makes matters worse, my normal stoma nurse retired and last week my Colorectal contact has also, retired and I have been unable to speak too either replacement, due to staff shortages.
Hopefully this can be resolved, as the pain is now getting bad, both internal and external around my bottom, becoming impossible to manage.
