Ostomy Lifestyle Question (November 2015)

Question:

Hello, about a year ago, I had an Ostomy done, and it has been fine until recently in April, when I started having severe stomach pains. It usually even hinders my sleep, as I’m stuck awake until 3AM, due to the pain. I am not sure if the pain has anything to do with the stoma, but I suspect the stoma is the reason. Hope you can help as soon as possible, thank you in advance!

Answer:

Pain is a body response and can be a sign of trauma and/or illness. It is important that you address your pain and discomfort, as it may be due to a potential medical issue.  Consult your physician/medical professional immediately.
