Is Discharge From a Rectal Stump Normal?
Colostomy - Complications - NHS
Background: Anastomotic leakage after rectal cancer surgery raises the problem of the timing of diverting stoma reversal. Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess whether stoma reversal can be safely performed at 6 months after laparoscopic sphincter-saving surgery for rectal cancer with total mesorectal excision in patients with persistent asymptomatic anastomotic leakage. Design: This was a retrospective analysis of a prospective database. Settings: The study was conducted at a tertiary colorectal surgery referral center.
Ostomy Surgery of the Bowel
A stoma is formed by bringing a loop of bowel from the colon to form a colostomy or from the small bowel to form an ileostomy to the surface of the abdomen. A pouch is then worn over the top of the stoma to collect the faeces. A stoma can either be permanent or temporary and reversed after several weeks to months once the bowel has had time to heal.
It's important to be aware of the possible problems you may experience after a colostomy. People who have a colostomy, but have an intact rectum and anus, often experience a discharge of mucus from their rectum. Mucus is produced by the lining of the bowel to help the passage of stools. The lining of the bowel continues to produce mucus, even though it no longer serves any purpose.
