Reply to "Diversion surgery"

I had a diversion due to a septic abscess.   The surgeon was able to do the diversion and ostomy creation laproscopically, no big incision.  I was warned ahead of time, however,  that they might have to open me up, but happily that didn't need to be done.  I got an end ileostomy - I was planning to remove the jpouch a year or so later (abscess had to heal, first).  I was out of the hospital in 3 days, but had to return due to ileus.   An FYI - there was a discharge out the rectal area until I had the pouch removed.  Sometimes this discharge was pretty voluminous, I was very glad when the pouch was removed and this discharge stopped.
