Hi!!  New to this post--usually post at Crohn's site!  To make this short, I have had crohn's for 22 years (42 years old) and have had my lovely colostomy for 11 years.  Lately I have had BAD pain when i pass my stools--starts slow and then it errupts!!  GI sent me for a ct scan and the results are that I have a very large Gallstone and a parastomal hernia.  The hernia is looped and is pressing against my abdomin wall.  GI wants me to see a surgeon asap said this needs to be addressed now.  Anyone else ever had this and what am i in for?  How much time will i have to spend in the hospital?  How often can this happen?  Any advise or stories of your own would be great!!  Thanks!!
