Decomposed Bowel Surgery On Babies Under 6 Months?
This happened to my friend’s niece, who was 3-4 months old, my friend’s niece had an intestinal cutting operation because the intestine was black / rotten. I wanted to ask if it was true that after the baby’s stomach surgery, the stitches were not sewn until waiting for the baby to be 6 months up or should be sewn after surgery so that the conditions are good and not festering? ”
As I explained in your question earlier, you must first ascertain what type of surgery is performed by the surgeon. Without certain information, we can only estimate that the case you are asking is a colostomy. In cases where a portion of the intestinal segment suffers tissue death due to any cause, the intestinal segment must be removed surgically. After that, the doctor can make a colostomy hole. The hole is indeed located in the abdominal wall and left open, because it is called the 'hole'. The decision to make a colostomy is made by the surgeon, based on the patient's condition. Colostomy can be used for discharge or pus discharge. Pus occurs due to a segment of the intestine that dies. If pus is left in a closed abdominal cavity without a way out, it will cause sepsis and be fatal. Therefore pus must be made a way out in the form of holes.
Generally colostomies are temporary, although in some cases, colostomies can be permanent. After the patient's condition allows, the doctor will decide when to close the hole.
All actions performed by a surgeon are dependent on the patient's condition and disease. Therefore, we do not have the right to justify or blame the actions of doctors, because we do not conduct patient examinations and do not deal directly. If there are doubts in the patient's family regarding the patient's condition, the patient's family has the right to discuss with the treating doctor to obtain complete information.
That's the explanation that I can give. Regards.
