About Me: Female, 46, Maple Shade, NJ, member since Apr 2013
I am a wife and mother, Catholic, happy and trying to be healthy. I am 80 lbs over weight and have been for 20 years. The older I get, the more I feel it. I am on no medications. I have been healthy. Two years ago, I had major emergency surgery and received a colostomy
[More] bag as a result. The reversal was 13 weeks later, which was followed by a hernia repair, to fix 3 hernia's as a result of the surgery. Since then, It has taken me a long time to recovery, feel like myself and be active. I just recently feel like I can exercise, and get back to life, and now I am having a stabbing pinching feeling at the colostomy site. This happens every time I bend. It is very scary and quite frustrating. Looking to get support and guidance, while I await an appointment with the surgeon who did all three surgeries.
