Hi. Has anyone ever had a sigmoidoscopy through the stoma? I am having it done on Thursday and I am very scared about it.
For almost the last 50 years, I haven't had any issues since having my ileostomy. But in the last 3 years, I have had pain in the same place, below and to the right of my ostomy. So far, 2 gastro doctors say this is scar tissue and can't help me. I went to a new gastro doctor and she is going to do a scope through my stoma.
Does anyone here have any recommendations for or against having this done? I am concerned if anything can happen to my stoma.
Thanks for your input.
