Has anyone had pain around there colostomy ? I had a pain that lasted almost 10 min and then it went away. I was just coming from the bathroom, it hit suddenly just above and to the left of my stoma on my left side just about waist area. I rubbed it and all is ok now, I know I am a worrier, but have never felt anything like that before. and after my 2 trips to the ER this past few days I am becoming so cautious of even moving and every litle thing that feels different. I have read people talking about gas pains. could that have been ? or I also have a perastomal hernia could that be what it was causing the pain. sorry to be such a baby but it seems that any little change now scares me.
