... There is one person I know of that is waiting still after one year. My case is different , I have a permanent colostomy. I could feel the scar tissue under the skin at the site of the stoma for a good six months. It did not cause any obstruction in my case and now (4 years later) I feel no scar tissue there. Your friend might have to wait 6 months or longer but things... (3 replies)
... Jaydees: Thank you for your response. Is it common-that scar tissue might be obstructing? If it is, is it most likely that it will dissipate or does the scar tissue mean that she will most likely need to go back to the colostomy. Do you happen to know how long the "wait and see" period is? I'm sorry for the million questions. I just want her to get better-I'm so sad.... (3 replies)
... There can be scar tissue that obstructs the bowel. The docs might be waiting for this to dissapate in the hope that her problems will go as the scar heals. It is a wait and see situation, here's hoping her the best outcome. Worst case, she will need a permanent colostomy. (3 replies)

... e ileo changed to a colostomy. I've heard so many stories about how reversals never seem to work right and the bowel never seems to function "normally" again. My colostomy by no means slows me down and some days I almost forget it's there. I can eat whatever I want and feel great! ... (23 replies)

... years ago a small bowel resection for a constricture, May 03 lower colon resection, rectum removal and ileostomy and Nov.03 ileostomy closure and colostomy. For all 3 surgeries I had a PCA and found it worked great for me. I hardly used it after the second day. ... (9 replies)
