Hi Scott, thank you for replying. For 14 years I assumed the bulge was the pouch site! 🤭 Particularly as it always stuck out and tends to swell and get bloated, I thought that was the pouch ‘filling’! Anyhow, that is the site of my pain and stinging. So do you know what this bulge is about so? It only became really noticeable after 2009 surgery for adhesions but was always protruding. Now I’m confused! Looking forward to hearing from you.
