PATIENT STORIES

Meet Jaywin

Bianca welcomed her first baby boy into the world on Thursday, 29 December 2016. Jaywin was born at Robertson Hospital but soon fell ill and was transmitted to Worcester Hospital, only to be referred to Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.

Doctors at Red Cross Children’s Hospital discovered that Jaywin had a stoma infection. He was rushed to theatre on Monday, 2 January 2017. A stoma is a small spout that is normally deep pink in colour. Although it may look raw, it has no feeling. It causes blockage and irregular flow of faeces and urine. In the stoma surgery, a doctor makes a small opening which diverts the faeces or urine, which is collected in a stoma bag that is worn by the patient.

The surgery was very successful for Jaywin and he is recovering very well. His mom was extremely worried about her son and was finding it extremely difficult to cope with her baby being ill. After the surgery was successful, she says, “I can’t wait for my baby to fully recover, so I can take him home and we can start our lives together.”
