Hi Cassy! I'm sorry you are hurting. I had my ileostomy reversed on March 9th and I still have some pain around the stoma site, and mine was stitched closed. It's not too bad at this point though, but it is very very tender. You are still quite new out of surgery so hopefully with time it will resolve itself...Good Luck!....Cheryl

Repeat Vaginal Prolapse Surgery 2006 (the mesh from previous prolapse surgery had let go and fallen into my bowels)...
Removal of mesh from bowels (it was piercing holes all through my bowels and appendix and cecum, causing 2 fistulas and heavy bleeding vaginally and rectally)...mesh was removed, two pieces of large bowel removed and resectioned with a loop ileostomy. 2008
I have underlying connective tissue disorder (Ehlers Danloss Syndrome) which is the reason for the two failed surgeries)
