Anybody with an ostomy and fibromyalgia get pain around their stoma?
For the past couple weeks I have had pain around my stoma? I had a parastomial hernia repaired last year and I am wondering if I have a new hernia, angry scar tissue, or it is just my fibromyalgia.
I am seeing my internist next week and hopefully she can shed some light on the issue.
Would make total sense your nerves are hyper sensitive. I had an L5 S1 discectomy 5 years ago and in 2016 had extreme nerve sensitivity kick in from that area down, including bladder and girly bits, feet and ankles. After leaving it alone and waiting... a long while, things calmed down on their own. It's the surgery.. our bodies take a long time to heal, even when we feel fine, it's still healing, and when tissue, nerves and muscle is cut.. the body remembers... I take gabapentin to calm the nerve messages. And the worst is over.. just hip and leg pain sometimes flares, but at least I know why.
