Hi - I had an Ostomy almost 2 yrs. ago due to Anal Cancer, so I didn't have previous & continuing problems like the Crohn's sufferers do, but after my Ostomy I have had leakage problems. I've been trying to strength my muscles by doing the Kegel (?) exercises (I --think--maybe???? they might be helping???? I do an "Irrigation" every other night, so get time in my tub, as the water drains in & out, to try to do the exercises then!!!!!
I was led to believe that it isn't an uncommon side effect because of all the "handling" & moving around of our various parts when the Drs. are inside of us doing their "thing".
