I had my ileostomy closure about 3 weeks ago and I've noticed within the last few days that my old stoma site had gotten kind of hard at the top and a little tender.Its kind of a lump. Is that normal? i'm not having any other problems so I'm thinking its ok. I go back to see the surgeon in about a week. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Seconding Jan. It could be an infection, like an abscess, that needs care ASAP before it gets worse (a week's wait should never happen), or it could be scar tissue forming. If you're not sure, then go in. Especially when you're still healing, it's much better to be safer than sorry.
