Morning (for me) Everyone.
I was looking for advice please. Basically my j pouch is riddled with inflammation that can’t be controlled with antibiotics so I’ve decided to have a permanent stoma formed…..tomorrow.
However, I have just read my surgeons notes from our conversation and he has mentioned a “de functioning stoma” and from what I can gather this is the loop one.
now, I didn’t mind the loop and I was healthy enough with it but it wasn’t the easiest to live with. Surely though as the stoma is permenant it doesn’t need to be a loop?
my surgeon has said he is leaving the pouch in as the risks with getting back into my pelvis are high so best it stays, is this why? I will talk to my surgeon about it but was wondering if anyone else has had the stoma re formed when the pouch has failed and if this is right?
