Nancy threw a punch at your cancer.
I'm sorry this has happened. Yes it sucks, just another thing to have to deal with. I've never had this happen to me, and I only had the puffiness a few weeks after surgery. But I have heard this happening to others and they had to have a minor surgery to correct the problem. They said it was an easy recovery compared to the colostomy proceedure. And I imagine it was. So sorry you are facing possible surgery. The doctor has the final say and will diagnose. My home visiting nurse had kept telling me that I had a hernia and when I got into the doctors, well she was completely wrong. So there is still hope that perhaps this isn't a herniated stoma. But if it is, you are taking proactive stand to quickly deal with the issue.I will say prayers for you. I understand how this fan be very upsetting. (Oh, the nurse said I had a hernia because I showed her an area on my belly that kept "popping" out. Come to find out I was just healing and it was just an area that would swell thru out the day) It no longer does that.
