Hi Bruce~
Have you tried the UOA.org site? This site has been invaluable to me re: colostomy info. Someone there surely will be able to offer insight.

Hi Bruce: Have they closed the old stoma and given you a new one? Is the hernia at the site of the old stoma?
See www.ostomy-winnipeg.ca/woa0100j.html
& www.wramc.amedd.army.mil/providerinfo/enterostomal/10.htm
you should be able to copy/paste these urls into your browser..
UOA and IOA sites are very informative also. Bud
