God I hate even feeling the need to discuss this....AGAIN! I started working out about a week ago and noticed pain next to my ostomy. At first I thought I strained the muscles but it's has become very painful and and a hard knot is under the surface. Now I think it's another fistula developing. What a drag. I guess I'm going to have to talk to my GI about surgery to correct it. I haven't had surgery since 1995 and man it's the last thing I want to have to do. Oh well, thanks for listening......reading. Any comments or encouragement is welcome. Tony

Crohns 30 years. Ileostomy for 15 years. Symptom free for 14 years until 8 months ago. Now on Remicade, B-12 injections and iron. Feeling much better!
God Bless. Tony
