Hi all: I've also posted this on the Colon Club website but seems there aren't many people out there who have had this happen. So I'll try you! I have had a colostomy for 5 months now. It appears I now have a stoma hernia. It may have happened when I used a binder (to keep the operation incision together) - had one specially made with a hole in it for the colostomy. I think that the differential pressure created by the binder and hole contributed to the emergence of the hernia.
Have anyone out there had this happen to them? If so, what did you do about it?
