It's varies a lot between people. I've seen people on the ostomy board saying there's wasn't healed after months, and other people say it went faster. Mine healed relatively quickly, but there were some bumps along the way. I had some sutures work their way out and it caused irritation, but nothing intolerable. I used heat packs to help it along. I am sure you're fine, so long as it doesn't hurt or ooze. If it just recently closed, I would give it some time before straining the area. If you're not sure, speak to your surgeon. Are you done with all your follow ups?
