Collection near the Sacrum after J Pouch

Hi there, I have been reading everything in this web site and I find it awsome.

I had my J Pouch created on 10/22/2013, the operation was OK but for some internat bleeding that wouldn't go so I had to take a bunch of antibiotics.

Today I went to have a scan in order to see if things are in place and Schedule for take down.

The results were not that good, it looks like I have a "collection near de sacrum" y don't understand very well what a "collection" is, but the docs say its like a fatty abscess. It's the size of a tennis ball.

Nobody knows where it came from, so tomorrow under xrays they will take a sample. What puzzels doctors is that I should be running a hi fever and feeling really bad, quite the opposite, I'm fine, eat good and don't feel sick at all.

I have 2 theories:

1. After a round of golf 2 saturdays ago, my loop went for ride and it hanged out about 4 inches, I was shocked !! went home and relaxed, the stoma finally retracted but when changing the appliance I noticed that some type of clear fluid came out of the borders of the stoma, if you pressed hard it would actually skirt out.
My guess is that the same fluid is collecting near the sacrum. But then I don't have fever so there is no infection.
2. My pouch or some part of my small intestine that is disfunctional is leaking, hence the fluid collected has no bacterias.

If any body had this, please drop me a note.
