OK, Don't laugh...but is it possible to choke your stoma? Every time food passes by stoma my stoma hurts on the inside. Some times I wonder if I am choking my stoma with my wafer and so my food is having a hard time passes through. When I had a small bowel follow-through study, it revealed that the contents went through my intestines and then stopped at my stoma. The stayed right behind my stoma for 5 hours before passing. My Dr put his entire finger (OUCH!) inside my stoma and said my wafer was NOT too tight. Today, I was in the shower and I felt that pain again behind my stoma so I removed my bag/wafer to see if the wafer was stopping the food from coming through. After about 3 minutes of pain, honey dew (you know the green melon that tastes to good) came shooting out of my stoma in waves. Now instead of having a clogged stoma, I have a clogged drain. I ate the honey dew 2 days ago. I cut it into tiny baby sized bites. Well, I am out of the shower and I just put a one-pc on and I am keeping the cut around my wafer a little lose to see what happens for the rest of the day. Right now my stoma is very sore from passing that fruit. It feels like it is bruised deep inside my stoma..weird huh?
