I am glad the surgery went well. Sorry about the placement problem hopefully, you will get used to this location. How are you feeling? Have you been able to eat anything? How is your ostomy function? The bag does "feel" obvious at first and it feels very heavy, like a weight. Your stomach muscles will adjust and soon you'll rarely think about it. Like you, I am pretty small so I wear small bags made by Hollister. I like these mini bags the best. However if you have high output, this may not work for you.
Remember to play with different products and find the ones that work best for you. It is also normal to feel that you are on an emotional rollercoaster. Some days you feel ok with your bag and other days you just want to cry at the reality of having a bag. This is normal. Allow yourself to feel these emotions don't surpress them. Feel free to come into the forum and vent if you need it. We understand your situtation and want to be here to help you through.
You are doing great!
