Hi my sister in...

Hi my sister in law has had a colostomy back for 2 months and tonight she actually passed something that looks like it can be part of her intestines. Should we get her to the ER or does this happen? I can send a picture but it would let me attach it here.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

This tissue just came out of her 5 minutes ago. She was already in the hospital for an infection.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nurontin, Metformin, atferstatin, cynipral, effexor, Selena, clozipam she had a routine colonoscopy and they removed a polyp and perforated her colon. So she was in the ER 2 days later and they did emergency surgery. That was 2 months ago. She still has a colostomy bag so she hadn't pooped out of her rectum for 2 monthd

This looks like a dried mucous patch which is an old one probably and came out after sometime with clotted blood. It is nothing much to worry about. So relax.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
