Post Spinal Surgery Complications required an Ileostomy: Anyone else?
Our 38 y/o son required an iliostomy following spinal surgery . He has just been transfered to Rehab. He has had to have straight caths done to empty his bladder every 6 hours. Last night he had horrible chills, no fever but vomited large amount undigested food. Today he says he feels "funny" in the head and still a little nauseated. I am concerned about the possibility of a UTI. Any spinal patients out there that can help this mom who is a retired nurse gain some perspective?
