I had a transverse colostomy in March, and I had thought that all was going well.  However a couple of days ago, I began to feel some pain at my stoma site.  The pain is not severe, and feels much like a muscle ache.  I was not too alarmed until today.  I have gone almost 24 hours with no action through my stoma.  two days ago, I woke up in the morning with the bag  distended to almost bursting by gas.  I had some thin stools until yesterday afternoon.  Nothing since.  Might this constitute a blockage.?  The reason for my colostomy was a nearly complete blockage of the descending colon.  Please any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated.
When there are no more choices, tha decision is easy!

I think you should probably call the dr. I think if you go more than 6 hours without output you are supposed to call the dr.
