Hey everyone, me again... (reminder, colostomy, reversal, several hernia surgeries)
Today at the gastroenterologist he informs me that a part of my problem may be a hernia IN my colon. (as anyone who has read my posts knows, I am at the point where I get so nervous at a drs appt. that I don't think of all the questions I have until I get home and panic) Is this possible or did I misunderstand him, I know he said it could be adhesions on my colon, scar tissue or maybe an internal hernia in the colon. IF this is the case, with every hernia there is a hole (obviously) could there be slight bile leaking in to my body thru this hole making me sick? Could this be the reason for everything. I mean I know I am not septic like last time, but if it is tiny amounts it might be an explanation. Would this be repairable without another colostomy? I can not find any info on the internet. I know that I am jumping the gun on worrying about that but I can not think of it without freaking out a little.
He also told me that the hard lines and lumps (other then the new umbilical hernias) are not normal and it is not normal for them to hurt after this time. I had just assumed after so many surgeries in such a short time that my stomach was jsut messed up adn I would have to live like that. He says no but obviously this is more important first. I have to bring him all my scans and stuff on Friday but wanted any opinions asap.
