Yes: But it will not help it go away. Only surgery can treat an umbilical hernia. As long as it is not incarcerated, repair can wait until after delivery.

Ostomy nurse: An ostomy nurse can suggest the best appliance for your ostomy type and location as well as troubleshoot leaks and skin breakdown. Benzoin or zinc oxide are good choices for leaks or skin breakdown, respectively. Ostomy paste can help "flatten" any uneven areas that prevent wafer from forming adequate seal.

Maybe: There could be an injury to your vertebrae or disk bulge. This would require an exam and possibly an MRI or other tests to make a true connection between the pain and your symptoms.
