I had a colostomy in January 2001. I have recovered quite well, but I have two problems. The area around the stoma is red, itchy and just plain uncomfortable. My second problem area is where the anus was. It seems the skin is tight and I can not sit comfortable or for any length of time. Will this get better? I feel like I have an obstacle the size of a peanut between my buttocks. I could probably consider returning to work soon if it were not for these two thorns. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
