This is my first post and hoping that someone might be able to help.
I have had an ileostomy for 42 yrs (was 10 weeks old when I had my surgery due to UC) Had my rectum and anus removed at age 7.
Thankfully I have been relatively problem free, through the years, but recently I have been experiencing pain around the left side of my stoma, it's a rather sharp pain that feels tender to the touch, and hurts when I am eliminating from my Stoma. It feels like I've pulled something inside. This has never happened before.
I have ovarian cysts and am wondering if it is growing into my Stoma.
Has anyone else experienced this type of pain?
A little scared need advice.
Any info is appreciated.
