Colostomy reversal pain

Hello, I had a successful colostomy reversal in August 2011. Unfortunately,  the last two days, I have been getting a stabbing pinching feeling every time I bend. The pain is right at the colostomy site. Any ideas what this could be?

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possible causes that may need to be considered include infections, inflammations, adhesions/ scar formation, neuro-muscular causes etc. You may consider getting this evaluated by your primary care physician or your treating gastrosurgeon for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
