I will be seeing a colorectal surgeon tomorrow at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. I have a list of questions for him. He is the second surgeon that I’ve seen. The first was at MUSC. I’m disturbed to hear about your pain. Is it from the stoma? The incisions? Please explain more. I want to be as prepared as possible. Thanks

The stoma is fine. The pain and pressure feeling emanates from the area up inside where the annus use to be before the surgery. Also had several abscesses right after the colon was removed. Those eventually cleared up, after the rectum was removed, but left a large scar on my abdomen from the drainage tubes. Just like most medical procedures we, along with the doctor, need to evaluate the benefit and risk factors. Hope your surgery is very successful with no after effects. Many are.

@rioa21, how did your appointment go?
