I am 6 years post takedown and have been relatively normal since then. I have occasional bouts of Pouchitis which are usually quickly resolved with antibiotics.
I also have had a few partial blockages in the last year or so that are painful and miserable, but generally last only about a day or two.
However, since New Years, I have had a small, sore knot near my stoma scar. I have still been having bowel movements, but I feel as though I can never get the pouch completely empty. Also, I feel very bloated and full all the time. I still have an appetite and am eating pretty normal, but I think it’s strange that I have this sore spot after a week.
Any idea what this pain might be from? Is it a stricture? Or just a partial blockage that hasn’t gone away yet?
Thanks for any advice!
