Before my colostomy, I had the most horrible burning in my "sit-upon". I had Crohn's Disease in my sigmoid colon and throughout my rectum. Evey BM caused horrendous pain to my "you-know-what". I had my colostomy and now have been pain free in the "A-hem!"
Problem is, now, with every BM, I have that same horrible burning in my stoma!
I had a colonoscopy last month and my doctor said everything was looking good, biopsies were fine. Could there be Crohn's acting up in the descending colon (that had been disected from the sigmoid colon and moved to the abdomen to be my stoma)? If the colonoscopy came back good, why am I having such awful burning in my stoma.
I also have pancreatitis and am taking Protonix to inhibit acid production so that the pancrease capsules I take with each meal will not be broken down by the stomach acids. Do you think that perhaps there is a lot of acid in my stomach that is causing the burning to my stoma? I just don't know what to think! I just don't know how to stop this awful burning.
Has this happened to anyne else?
Please let me know as this burning is bothering me very much.
God bless and stay well,
