More or less 6 months after completing estensive radiation i had to have an illiostomy. About 6 months later I had some reconstructive work done on the colon and am about to have the illiostomy taken down, YEH!!! BUT, as things go, in January i developed hematuria and that magnified into hemoragic cystitis (excessive hemoraging from the bladder). I have been in the hospital 3 times since new years and have had 11 pints of blood and who knows what else...I am hoping to hold out long enough this time to get the illiostomy gone. I am scheduled for next tuesday. I sprung a little leak last week but willed it gone and it has not returned. Wish me luck. Anyone else out there had similar leaky or disfunctional plumbing???
