Severe cramping & bleeding ostomy

Posted: Sun Aug 13, 2017 1:20 pm

Has anyone had severe cramping & blood coming from colostomy?  I've had an ostomy for 9 years & this a first for me.  Anyone???

Hello Clormad.

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.

Best wishes

Bill

Hi Clormad,

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.

Regards,
