Ihaven't visited for a while, my husband became very ill and was on life support for a few weeks. Thankfully he is recovering.

I have had to postpone my hyperbaric oxygen treatments and my re-section surgery.

What I wpold like to ask, has anyone ever had a rectel bleeding problem while having a colostomy pouch?

I bleed a fairly good bit every day and when I tell my surgeon,he doe's not seem concerned about it.

Should I be concerned?

Hope everyone else is doing well.

Thanks for any advice you could give me.

My understanding is that this is normal.

When I first got my colosomy my rectum was draining blood/healing,and it has to heal from the inside out and it really smelled.It took from august untill the holidays to heal completely.Your doctor should have told you,my doctor had a nurse come by every day to change the packing in the wound.A wound vac will help it heal quicker,but has some drawbacks.I hope this helps,good luck.
