There Is A Thread In Postoperative Colostomy?
And now the yarn is loose because of the cleansing with Nacl whether the thread does not have any effect or is it safe without the thread?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Colostomy is a surgical procedure that aims to direct the tip of the large intestine to the abdominal wall. Later on the surface of the stomach from the outside will be seen 'door' to the large intestine called a stoma. The purpose of this stoma formation is as a new pathway from food that no longer passes through the anus. Colostomy can be only temporary or permanent, depending on the disease and clinical conditions experienced by the person. If only temporarily, later part of the separated large intestine will be connected again as before when the clinical condition has improved.
Conditions where colostomy is usually needed are when there is blockage, injury, Crohn's disease, colonic polyps, cancer, diverticulitis, IBS, and ulcerative colitis conditions. Regarding your question, chances are you mean the thread sewn to make sure the intestine does not shift from its original position. Clear colored thread is usually the thread absorbed by the body. Regarding whether or not this thread is safe, it actually depends on the conditions. If the tissue is already completely fused and closed, it doesn't matter if the thread is absorbed or detached. And vice versa, if the thread is detached prematurely, then a sewing may be needed.
Because this cannot be known without a direct examination, we recommend that you consult your condition with the doctor who has been treating you. Your doctor will certainly know whether the colostomy is intended to be permanent or not, and whether the thread is naturally loose or not. That way even if it takes action it needs to be done immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
