I had an emergency colostomy in March 2010 and was not experiencing any discomfort...but this week I decided to try and get back into golf. I played nine holes twice, with a day off in between. I now am experiencing discomfort around the stoma and in the groin area. Is this normal, since I haven't used these muscles for so long, or is it telling me maybe I shouldn't be playing golf again? Anyone out there that has had a similar experience after doing physical activity after surgery? Would hate to give up the golf...really feels good to get back out there after all these months. Thanks and have a great day. Becky
Skin health means something very important if you have an ostomy. That is because the state of the skin around your stoma may affect your quality of life. Find out how and why here.
