I had been doing really well healthwise with my ileostomy, until the other night, woke up with pain on the left side of my abdomen. Seemed to me to be a partial obstruction. Funny thing is that these occur only after I lay down, mainly when I am on my right side. So my usual routine now is go to bed, wake up a few hours later in pain, then spend the rest of the night sleeping in my recliner. Sitting up, or even reclining allows things to start moving, and the pain subsides. Anybody ever have anything like this, or offer suggestions? I sure miss sleeping in my bed.
