Thread: Sigmoid End Colostomy Question

    Sigmoid End Colostomy Question

    I had a sigmoid end colostomy done about 1.5 years ago. Ive been a c5 quadriplegic for 18 years. I?m motor complete but sensory incomplete. I pretty much have sensation any where in my body. Sometimes I feel the urge to poop so my girlfriend does some digital stimulation and some times gets some puddy gooey stuff out. The other day I had pooped out mucous with a thick ball came out my butt. Is this normal? Is there an easier way to remove the puddy stuff. She said she still feels something up there when she does digital stimulation. Like a ball of stuff. We also notices a little blood on the glove but I think it was from the anus. Please share if you have a similar experience. Thanks

    This is common. The lower part of your tract still works it just doesn't put out volume. I've heard that an enema can work. I haven't had success with it though. Mine just comes out randomly when showering usually. It is a pain in the butt but not the end of the world.
