ive been somewhat of a couch potato the last couple of months due to anemia. Well im taking iron now and my energy level has greatly improve so I decided to work out......2 days in a row. Today my belly hurts right next to my ostomy and the muscle is hard. feels sore. I'm hoping I just strained it and its not something worse. Any feedback to make me feel better about it?
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!

Yeah. I agree with TheBag. It's sore a while. Esp. when you get out of shape from ur surgeries and stuff.
Mine would feel like that even if I took a long walk. But now it's better since I've been more active.
Did ur Dr. tell you no sit-ups? Too risky for hernia or prolapse.
