My mother has had a colostomy for 18 years and

My mother has had a colostomy for 18 years and suddenly is having a vaginal discharge which is sticky looking and kind of brownish and today had a yellow/brown discharge which was thin and watery coming from her rectum??? Could this mean bowel may have perforated. She was given a suppository earlier in day inserted into colostomy which has been done in the past with no results like this, just making her have a bm.

My 87 year old Mother had ovarian cancer and now has a colostomy (14 years). She has had dementia for the last 5-6 years. She recently was hospitalized and the colostomy was moved to the other side. She has had 3 surgeries in less than a month. She has been in the hospital for over a month. Of course, she is very confused. She now seems very concerned with her weight. She was a GREAT eater prior to this hospitalization, but now is happy she is losing weight. She says, nothing tastes good and picks at everything. Is this normal to lose taste or could there be there some underlying reason she is not eating?

About a year ago my mother had a colonostophy The test, not the major surgery. She was 80 years old at the time. The colon test revealed that she has a condition in her upper bowl that is like an accumulation due to constipation over the years and is common in older people. My mom s Dr. told me the name of the condition but I forgot it.
