I am 7 months post-op for a total proctocolectomy.  I am pain free except when I sneeze, cough or run.  I want to start jogging again but my abdominal area hurts a bit when I run.   I do have a bit of a "poochie" and am wondering if a hernia belt would help hold things kind of tight so it doesn't jiggle.  tongue
Any ideas?

I have had my ileostomy for 10 months. I can jog, but it makes my stomach hurt right above my stoma. I usually stick to walking and maybe even a fast walk. I do have a hernia though and I am not sure if this is where the pain comes from.

I make sure to wear my hernia belt at all times while exercising.

I have also used a belly band that is made for pregnant women. That also helps to keep everything from jiggling around.
