Ok, I have had my ileostomy for many years now (since '93), also have had several abscesses in the butt region...fun, but this is a new one for me...I hope someone has an idea or suggestion about what might be happening.
I am having ridiculous pain sort of as if my body is trying to go to the bathroom really hard (sort of like phantom pain), and the belly in the lower left area is radiating pain....it feels so strange. I have had some bad blockages in the past and this doesn't feel like that at all. The pain woke me up and I can't get comfortable. Any ideas?
Crohn's Disease since 1991, 2 rounds of ng tube feeding, Ileostomy since 1993, Proctectomy in 1997, several resectionings & stoma revisions, many blockages and a few abscesses and surgery to remove them. Medications used at one point...prednisone, 6MP, Flagyl, Asacol, Pentasa, Imuran, Cipro, Rowasa, Cortifoam, Methotrexate
