Hi, everyone! I haven't been on in a while. I had my "second" takedown in May and doing pretty well, but last week I starting having pain at a hard spot just above my ostomy closure that seemed to correspond with constipation. I suddenly have lots more gas and more spasms/pain at the cuff that appears to be gas pressure, along with lots of stomach gurgling!
I the evenings, the more I stand the more I feel pressure at the rectum and need to sit or lie down.
Do I have pouchitis? The tough stuff started happening after I went to a dinner, had a glass of white wine, lots of cheeses, breads, etc., that may have exacerbated the issue.
Would I benefit from Probiotics (I had been talking general Wegman's probiotics) and maybe prilosec?
