I think I have a parastomal hernia. The skin above my stoma is puffy and bulging. It sticks out pretty far and also sometimes feels sore. Does anyone else have any experience with a parastomal hernia? I see my surgeon October 13th about
this. I am very upset and just want to be normal.
I have always had a slight bulge, but it has gotten noticeably worse since I started back working. I do lots of bending and twisting with my job and I think this has contributed to the worsening of the bulge.
I plan to order a hernia belt, but am not sure which one is best. Any advice? Tracy
