hey guys, what do you think of this? So it’s been 3.5 weeks since my jpouch creation and ileostomy. Since the surgery, I’ve had tailbone pain. The doctors said it was normal. It wasn’t getting better so finally they did a CT...the ct showed some fluid in front of my tailbone and behind the jpouch but the ct wasn’t able to tell if the fluid was from the jpouch (leaking out) so they did another test where they put contrast in the jpouch and watched if the contrast leaked out (using some kind of X-ray machine). Anyways, thank goodness it didn’t show that any fluid was leaking out of the pouch. So then they were thinking maybe and abscess. I don’t have any fever and my white count was normal. So now they are just going with a hematoma and they aren’t doing anything about it...they said it’ll just absorb in my body. What do u guys think? Has anybody else had a hematoma? I’m slightly worried that maybe it is an abscess as I’ve read of so many people getting those behind the jpouch, but my blood work is normal. Would blood work show if I had an abscess? If it is an abscess, what would they do about it?

 

thank you!!
