Its been a rough past three months with three obstructions... One bad enough my kidneys stopped functioning for roughly 24 hours. I was very fortunate to get cleaned out and skip surgery. How, Im not sure other than staying positive.
I apologize to anyone who has written and Ive not responded to...its been rough amd I have been lazing around or relaxing at the beach as much as possible.
My problem is, and its probably adhesions, I have intermittent pain below my stoma...stabbing and painful...off and on. Also I was always a stomach sleeper. Well since I got my ileostomy I can only sleep on my back. If I even lie on my side, either side, it feels like my insides are being pulled or dropping and its quite painful as well. I have an above average pain tolerance... So I am not sure what to think. My surgeon couldn't care less. Any ideas on dealing with thr the pain or ways to sleep? Im having terrible insomnia because Im not comfortable on my back...I stomach slept for over 40 years.
I hope everyone is doing well!
Blessings upon all of you.
