Has anyone had severe cramping & blood coming from colostomy? I've had an ostomy for 9 years & this a first for me. Anyone???
I have never had blood coming from inside the stoma but plenty of times from the outside where I can see what is wrong. If yours is coming from the inside, I would seek medical advice.
As for the cramps, this happens occasionally and is very painful. Sometimes it's caused by trapped wind, which I can,if I'm lucky, manipulate to pass and all becomes well again. Other times it simply goes away on its own after a while. Personally, I put mine down to the fact that I get severe cramp in other parts of my body and this may be just the same symptom but located in a different place. Whatever the cause, it's not very pleasant and I can certainly empathise with you.
Bill suggestions are experienced based. I can't improve upon his advice.
Being a survivor is a challenge at times. If you are bleeding internallly if it's red,
the injury may be local, if it's black it may be a bleeding ulcer...my experience.
