Ok, here's my current scenario. About 7pm till about 11pm I begin to get bad stomach cramps that travel left to right across the top of my abdomen area. It happens like clock work every night. It doesn't matter what or when I eat, it is the same every night. My ileostomy surgery was on the 12th of July and these cramps started about two weeks after I got home from the hospital. I had my post op and told the doctor about this. He was not concerned and said everything was all "angry" in there and will take time to get better. These cramps are beginning to wear me out! Did any of you have this issue??? It seems when the cramps get done, the stoma empties out really fast in several bursts and the pain stops. I've taken ibuprofen, gas ex and taken my other pain medications to help it and the heavy hitter pain meds are the only ones that help it. Any assistance with this would be helpful.
