Hi Dan

 

Prolapse happened a couple of weeks ago,  not sure why I am just 3 months on recovering from an emergency Ileostomy surgery.  Stoma nurse was excellent, apparently, these things can just happen, happy to say all is back to normal and no reoccurrence.  I make sure I don't lift anything heavy, as the last thing I want is to be an inpatient any time soon. 

Being fitted for a belt tomorrow so will have some extra support.

Prolapse happened a couple of weeks ago,  not sure why I am just 3 months on recovering from an emergency Ileostomy surgery.

I got one after five years, but I was being careless when lifting some very heavy things around. We must always be mindful of how we lift things and how much weight we are putting on our abdominal muscles. 

I did have a hernia belt on, which may have prevented a hernia, but may have also contributed to the prolapse since pressure from my abdomen was forced to take the path of least resistance - which was the opening in the support belt. 

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.
