I have not posted to the forum for a long time, because everything is going so well.  Now I befginning to have problems.   had a transverse colostomy, and a rather large stoma. Now the stoma is herniatng, and it has become so large that I have troubler getting in a pouch.  I use the Hollister 2 piece system with a 4" opening, but my stoma sticks out about 1/2" on easch each side.  Does any one make an appliance with a larger opening?

Ralph,
It's good to hear from you. My suggestion is to call the 1-800 numbers of the different companies, like Coloplast, Convatech and Hollister, and ask them. You can get their phone numbers off of their websites.
Good luck!

Ralph,

I'm just getting caught up on the posts on this forum and saw that you had posted. How are you doing? Were you able to find a product to help you out?
