You are describing EXACTLY what I feel! I had a colostomy last May and these pains started in November. Sometimes I am doubled in two, curled up in the fetal position in bed to ride out the crampy, contraction-like pains. Other days I am fine-I have had two painfree days in a row now. I just started on belladonna, which the doctor said may help the cramping. It seems to be helping.
I am soooo glad to have found someone who feels as I do!
I forgot to mention-I have been on six laxatives a day for three weeks to keep things cleared out. Sure "cramps" one's style LOL!
