Has anyone had a jpouch and then for WHATEVER reason had to go back to an ileostomy? I am only 27 yrs old. I was dx with rectal cancer and FAP last year. I had the temp ileostomy and now the jpouch. But I have developed a deep fissure, GI doc said about 1 cm deep, that is obviously super painful and am in pain basically 24 hrs. I don't have much sphincter muscle left so surgeon and GI doc are a little apprehensive on suturing or cutting fissure out. I also deal with incontinence, I think due to radiation. Therefore the fissure is having a hard time healing. My surgeon started me on paregoric and are trying to get incontinence under control to see if they can heal the fissure. I'm giving it til the end of the year to try everything but I can NOT live like this. So I'm thinking I may go back to the bag in hopes of having a better quality of life. Any suggestions, ideas, comments, maybe this has happened to someone? Thank you!
