Foul Smelling Liquid And Blood From The Surgical Scar?
Doctor … After 7 months of bowel cancer surgery, the stitches in the rectum come out with a foul smelling blood mixture due to infection wounds or cancer cells. Are you living again? Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The complaint that you are experiencing, is likely due to an infection. This is very possible because the seams, even though visibly visible tightly, microscopically still open up space for bacteria to enter and infect. Especially in your case, this stitch is in the rectal area, one of the dirtiest areas in the human body.
Therefore, we suggest that you consult your surgeon with the surgeon who has been treating you, or if you have difficulty, at least check with the nearest health center doctor, so that you can clean the stool and assess where the disease is coming from. Because apart from the above possibilities, other infectious conditions can also occur, such as anal abscesses, anal fistulas, folliculitis, fungal infections and the effects of insect bites or stings. By seeing a doctor directly, misunderstandings can be avoided and the handling can be more precise.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much, keep the area clean and dry, wipe every liquid that comes out, routinely change underpants, drink plenty of water and consume vegetables and fruit, avoid pushing too hard when defecating, if it feels painful, you can take medication pain relievers and anti-inflammatory which are sold freely by reading the rules of use listed, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
