Small trial suggests the scans might help, but experts aren't so sure

I had permanent colostomy surgery 2 years ago, and my anus was removed. I am now closed up down there.
For the past week, and especially today (I do have appt with doc tomorrow), there is pain in the buttocks when sitting, and sometimes lying down. Today, it feels a bit sharp, and almost feels like pressure.. like a sharp bowel movement is trying to come out... BUT, the lower part of the intestines were removed, and I'm closed there.
Has anyone felt this? Could it be a rectal hernia? Is surgery the only option, if so?

Countrykeys, do you mind sharing your outcome? My mom has been suffering from the same pain for months now. Doctors haven't really given us much input, other then "it's normal"...
Thank you in advance!

I had the same surgery 3 years ago and have never had any problem like this. I too would love to hear the outcome of your Dr. appt. and what the Dr. thinks it is. (for future reference) it would be a good thing to know about!
I hope it is nothing serious.
