My sister is still in hospital. She had a caecostomy as opposed to a colostomy or illeostomy. I can find very little information in caecostomies other than they are considered palliative. She is still experiencing leaking from the transverse colon and had a drain fitted but every time they move her the leakage also comes out of the wound. We watch her eat and drink and then the drainage bag starts to fill. I spoke to her oncologist and asked them what the plan is. The palliative care team are going to get involved and we will just have to wait and see. It dosn't look great but there is still hope that she will be able to leave hospital. I just wish the doctors would have an honest conversation with her and then we can plan. Other than the bowel issues she says she feels great and is eating again but given the leak I wonder why they haven't put her on TPN to rest her bowel and my conclusion is because they don't think there is any point. I am sad beyond belief as this disease is like a runaway train.
