Lately I have noticed some bleeding and pain around my stoma.
I have always had a little bit of blood (like a paper cut), but the past 2 days it been more and brighter. To the point that I have to hold a paper towel to stop the bleeding before I place another appliance on.
The pain I am getting is when I feel movement coming out. I have never had that type of discomfort before. I do not know if it is because my waist band for my clothes rest on my stoma or a possible blockage. My husband does not believe it is a blockage, due to that I am drinking constantly.
I do have a call into my ostomy nurse. I hope she will be able to see me sometime today or tomorrow the latest.
I am just scared that something is going terribly wrong.
