your waist line will get smaller, but the "bumps" will never totally go away...

I mentioned before I too have the same thing. I think as you lose weight it actually gets worse, mine did. I weigh 125 and I still have it.

Oh it's not just me then I too have one boohoo.  I was skinny when I first had the op have fattened up now and it's still the same I was hoping loads of excercise when I'm better might help it, probably not shakehead

Same here. I am trying to lose weight right now using WW and counting points. The large bump is still there and probably always will look like a swollen mellon. Soooo my option is to lose as much of the buttocks as possible, work on posture and wear shirts/jackets to conceal as much as possible. I refuse to let this problem ruin my life. I am a survivor of UC /dyplasia and will concentrate on that.

OMG, I just thought to myself two days ago, that my stomach looks like a butt!  The scar runs straight down, seperating two butt cheeks, lol.  Although, I guess it's not that funny!  I was hoping it would go away with time, my scar is rather purpleish right now (just had surgery last Oct), had initially lost a lot of weight, but have managed to gain it all right back again.  Gonna have reversal in April, the doctor said he would refine the scar then, make it finer and thinner---we'll see.  I was hoping to only have one butt then--  Well, glad (I guess) to know I'm not the only one.

As I was sitting here laughing, my daughter asked me what was so funny, so, I told her and showed her what my stomach looks like (she's 13).  At that very moment, my stoma decided to "talk", my daughter said, well, it sounds like a butt too!  Oh, the poor humor here--

I have the same issue. But I have found that if I am less bloated then it isn't as bad.

I have a scar from hip to hip from my tummy tuck I had in 2007. I'm having a subtotal colectomy in april, I will have a scar down my tummy connecting to my tummy tuck car...like a upside down T. My belly button even has a scar around it.

I am 24 years old and scars don't bother me. I personally think they give you character ;)

Yep...a stomach butt just about sums it up. I have had 4 surgeries, breast bone to pubic bone. Let's just say I have quite the racing stripe down my torso!
Cancer Diagnosis  Jan 2001
Hysterectomy turned into colostomy on left side.
 
Feb 2002 
Takedown surgery turned into reconnecting to rectal stump but ended up with a temporary ostomy on right side.
 
Radiation therapy has caused too much scarring of the rectal area to allow for normal BM's. So temporary ostomy has become perm.
