I had my colostomy reversed on July 1, 2016. Other than having an obstruction after, things have been pretty calm health-wise until now.
I am now having some pretty weird pain where my stoma was. Kind of a burning, stinging pain. At three months out, is this normal? I would love to hear your reversal story and to know it will get better....and just how long did it take to get to feeling normal again?
In total, I have had three small bowel obstructions since my first surgery for colon cancer in Dec. I am so scared of having another. Talk about mental duress! I think I may have bowel PTSD. I'm not making light of PTSD, I really think I have it. The NG tube was pure trauma, every time. Now when I eat, I am worried I am just one hour away from needing to go to the ER. Any words of wisdom on how to deal with the paranoia?
