Hello all. I am just under three years past surgery where I went from a J-pouch to ileostomy and Barbie butt. Just two days ago, I woke up having major pain. It probably could be phantom rectum, but I also get pain in the lower back and some lower abdomen burning. I have had no issues here since 3 months after surgery where I became septic due to a hair in the closure causing a tiny hole. It hurts to sit, lay, walk. Feels like a lot of pressure just sitting there. Does anyone have any thoughts or have gone through this? I am new to NC and will hit my 90 days at my new job in a couple of days for insurance to start. I am ready to go to the hospital.
As you recover from surgery, you may feel tired and not interested in exercising much, if at all. But it's important for your health and well-being to start moving around.
