Hi new to the group, am just about to go to my 1 year follow up. Since I was 43, and my infection was severe, I had to have the surgery. Once opened they found that one of the pouches had burst however luckily was sealed by the "fatty tissues" thus no infection from that thankfully. However due to a family history of colon issues my surgeon has recommended yearly colonoscopies. And within the last 3 months, I have been hit with left side pain numerous times, but lastng only minutes. Has anyone heard of this condition reoccurring? My surgeon said he has had only 1 patient that has had the condition come back. I should add that due to the nursing staff I did contract a staph infection after the surgery called ostiomylitus, because of an injury in the hospital after the surgery. I was just curious because I dont want to ever see another NG tube for the rest of my life. I can deal with the scar, the pain, but not the NG tube, or seeing NBM written on my board again. Thanks.
