I'm about to get surgery under my old stoma site (I was reversed in February). The hernia popped up right after surgery and in the past month or so has been causing debilitating pain (along with an ovarian cyst or two!).
It's supposed to be a really simple surgery, but my doctors told me NOT to go through surgery unless the pain was too much to handle.
More scar tissue = bad.
