on Wednesday my home health aide and I were changing the colostomy and theres a bump under my stoma and it was there a few a months ago the doctor said it was extra tissue from the stoma and its there again and I'm so stressed out I want the colostomy out and I really can't take that it does all these things, I feel like nothing is healing.
I really want to get rid of it but I know I can't, and I'm wicked stressed out confused confused

Hey Sweetie...

Boy, do I hear your frustration, and ya know the biggest question to me is...If these medical people have never had a stoma, how is it they can tell us whats O.K. and whats not!!!!! I have an ileostomy, and it has never, ever worked right. The reason I can say this is because this is my second time around with a stoma, and by comparing notes on the two...well, this one sucks!!! Your bump could be a hernia, does it hurt? Have they done any x-rays to see if it is tissue or possibly something stuck there? I would demand an appointment, and then don't leave till you have some clarity on what is going on! Is your stoma permenent?  I do hope you find some relief, I know relief is something that only seems visible by the removal of the "evil" thing(stoma) Take care of you, and I will, for real, pray you to find some answers!

I always wanted to give my doctor a stoma haha. When the bag comes off and we change and clean it, thats when it hurts but otherwise it doesn't bother me. I have to live with my colostomy for the rest of my life, I'm not good at accepting things like medical.

I was born with cerebral palsy and reigers syndrome, they both have an affect on how I walk, the doctors don't think that I can walk because my legs are to spastic, and I wanted to tell them "why don't you give me your legs and I give you mine that way I'll be happier?" But I have never told them that.

I feel like after one thing is better something always goes wrong with my body and it's always been like that but with my colostomy it will start to heal then my brain tells it to send another problem, I get so mad at my brain.
