Pain on the opposite side of old stoma site?

I had my surgery on the 21st of June. I'm mostly healed, even in the stoma site. (The stoma hole is practically gone by now) Yet, now I'm starting to feel this burning pain on the left side of my naval, even though the old stoma site is on the right. 

Is this something normal or is it something with the nerves?

I had my takedown on 14th july. I get some pain but very low on my left side too. Talked to my surgeon he said its normal . I get in mostly in the morning when I wake up. After 1-2 hrs its gone. Doesnt bother in any way so I dont think its anything unusual.

Does yours particularly hurt when sitting up? Its not incredibly painful, but its painful enough to notice when sitting or walking. It doesn't hurt lying down. 

I can feel it when I go to the bathroom in the morning . Its there when I press it or move around . But I dont think its very noticeable . Except for the morning I dont feel it at all. Once I drink jug full of water it goes away . Maybe its due to empty space in our abdomen region.

That makes sense!
