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?
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.
