Its been 5 weeks since my surgery. Things are going ok. I only had one issue with a bag leak. But I do have another issue that I'm concerned with.
When I get up in the morning I feel fine, but after moving around for about an hour or so my "stomach" (Under my belly button) starts to swell up and I'm very uncomforable. Sometimes it swells above my belly button.
I went to the doctor a week ago and she didn't seem to concerned about it. Only if it continues after a few more weeks come back to see her.
Can anyone having had an ileostomy give me any insight about this issue. Is this normal???
