Intussusception In Children Aged 3 Years?
Hello, my child 2 months ago after the intussusception operation and the doctor removed or cut off the intestine that died because the intestine was black, and the surgeon made a stoma on my child’s stomach, how long does the stoma usually close back to normal again? How long does the intestinal regeneration take? Prev
Intussusception is a condition in which the intestine folds and enters another part of the intestine so that eventually the flow of the gastrointestinal tract becomes obstructed, if the condition is severe enough then surgery needs to be done and if there is dead intestinal tissue, the dead tissue must be removed so that the recovery process can take place well.
Pengakatan part of the intestinal tissue will affect the flow of waste disposal of the remains of the digestive process, so that the waste will be diverted to a new estuary to get out of the body. Where the estuary is referred to as a stoma.
How severe is the tissue damage that has occurred and the patient's condition determines how long the stoma remains in place, where the stoma can be removed the fastest after 3-4 months from the operation if the recovery process is going well, but if the recovery condition is slow or the condition is quite severe then the person needs to use a stoma for years and some even use a stoma for life.
So that is, when is the right time for someone with a proper stoma to be able to stop using the stoma, of course, it involves various aspects that must be assessed first, starting from clinical symptoms, physical examination (physical) supporting examinations such as blood labs, imaging (ultrasound, X-rays, etc.). That is why your child is advised to periodically return to the pediatric surgeon, so that he can evaluate the extent of the recovery process.
