diversion colitis

Does anyone out there with a colostomy have diversion colitis? I have been plagued with this since I first got my colostomy 8yrs ago.... mainly bleeding and cramping in what's left of the rectum area. Any ideas or drugs out there that would help ease these symptoms?

Hi Iari,

I had severe diversion colitis with my ileostomy. I bled several times every day and in the end I had to get the stump removed.

Some drugs that did help were pentas suppositories and predfoam (steroid foam enema).

I hope you can find something that helps.

Thanks for the advice. I have heard horror stories about having the rectum removed. That it doesn't heal etc. Can you tell me what was involved with your surgery?
