Notes from today

outlet issues
Conferenced GI on the phone.
Only about a 50% cecostomy success rate, both Drs have the same stats.
No other meds to try.
Perform Ileostomy not colostomy. 
Colostomy still requires separate tube flushing. 
Colostomy will not work if colon does not function.
Will prepare her for different outcomes, so she doesn’t feel lied to again. 
Not Mechanical? That would be an obstruction?
Examined belly (yes is distended)
Takes 1-2 years for the system to start functioning. 
Is reversible.
Won’t be tomorrow, sometime in March.
