I am a year with my colostomy after my SCI a year and a half ago. The colostomy has been wonderful liberating me from my rectal incontinence......until now. I have been hospitalized for a week now to treat a UTI. During this time I have developed C Diff and suddenly I am purging diarrhea both into my Ostomy bag AND out of my rectum!! How is this possible? My colostomy was supposed to resolve my rectal incontenence, and, for a year, it did just that. How can my rectum now suddenly be purging fecal matter again? No one here seems to have an answer.
