VAGINAL SURGERY

 

If you have a vaginal infection you may need surgery. Our gynaecological experts can diagnose and treat you

What is an ileostomy?

An ileostomy stops waste passing through the entire digestive system. It's reasonably common and can help the small intestine or colon heal after surgery, such as during bowel cancer treatment.

It may also relieve inflammation caused by Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, or enable rectal or anal surgery.

Need to know

The procedure will likely be carried out under local anaesthetic. Your consultant's surgical approach may vary. Here we describe one such approach.

Your consultant surgeon will make a small incision at the vaginal introitus (opening). This will allow the drainage of any infection in this area. Or if the vaginal opening has closed, it will begin to open to a greater level.

After the relatively short procedure, your surgeon will clean the area and recommend the next steps of your recovery process.

Your consultant will explain how best to prepare for an incision of your vaginal introitus, answering any questions you might have.

Your consultant will let you know when you can get back to your usual routine, including immediately following the procedure.

You may be asked to remain in hospital until you are able to pass urine. You will likely be given medication or cream to apply for a short period. Your consultant will advise you on when to attend a follow-up appointment.
