Thanks so much for the replies It helps having someone know at least this part of what I'm going through.
OMG...today I had a BM through my rectum! IT freaked me out. THey said that since my surgery was ER that some old bowl had made its way down. I didn't know what to think. Thank God for the ostomy nurse who calmed my fears.
I have a question. In every picture I see peoples stomas are stcking out from there skin, and small. I have a large round indented hole. Yes its gotton smaller but its more IN my stomach not sticking out AT ALL. its really goes in more than anything. Is this norma? I"m trying a convex bag, but the dumb stoma is right where my fat has a big crease and its hard to get a seal.
oh, and I cannot use the paste. The alcohol burns badly. I found the barrier rings to be very good.
my skins looks like I'm been burt with a big round thing.
Also, if you know, when I get the reversal, what will they do with this massive hole in my abdomen?? I want scar revison. for that and my LifePort scar.
sorry for the rambling.
Hope you all are doing well.
