I have a hernia under my colostomy and it looks like I'm 4 months pregnant from the left side. I've talked to my doctors on a number of occasions. They say that until the hernia gets caught and starts to strangle the intestines there is nothing they can do. I have thought about getting my stoma switched to the other side to see if that would help, but my docs don't think so.
I know how you feel, hernias are a pain.
