Doctor’s advice: colostomy reversal for Jason Ivler

/ 01:45 AM November 16, 2011

A doctor who examined road rage suspect Jason Ivler has told the court that a reversal procedure on his colostomy was advisable once the inflammation in his colon subsides.

In a note to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, Dr. Romeo Abary of Quirino Memorial Medical Center (QMMC) said Ivler was given an antibiotic for the infection.

The medical examination proceeded on Monday on orders of a Quezon City court to determine if the accused needs surgery to reverse the   procedure.

The BJMP, through jail warden Senior Inspector John Conrad Basilio of the Special Intensive Care Area in Camp Bagong Diwa, forwarded the initial findings to the court.

Basilio said Ivler returned to his jail cell in Taguig City at around 6:20 p.m.

The QMMC conducted a colonoscopy on Ivler, during which a small camera was inserted through his anus to check the condition of his colon.

Abary noted that part of the colon had colitis, or was inflamed, and prescribed metronidazole, an antibiotic, to be taken every six hours, according to a  report filed in Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 84, with Judge Luisito Cortez.

The procedure is apart from the laboratory work-up, ECG, X-ray and other medical tests.

Ivler is facing murder charges for the death of Renato Ebarle Jr. in a traffic altercation in November 2009.

He was injured in a shootout with lawmen at his mother’s house in January 2010, after which he was confined for sometime at the QMMC.

Ivler’s intestines sustained injuries as a result of the shootout, leading him to undergo a colostomy.
