Hello, I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the discomfort I have had ever since my colostomy following the discovery of rectum cancer 12 weeks ago.
I am unable to get comfortable sitting upright as it feels like everything is being squashed inside. I sometimes also get a tugging feeling at the bottom of my stoma.
Above my stoma is swollen and it feels like I have to hold myself as I get up to support it. I'm sure I have a hernia, but I'm getting no support from the surgeon or hospital.
I can't see myself ever being able to leave the house as I'm only comfortable lying down.
