I know I posted on here about my stoma separating from the skin in which it is still doing. But when I change my bag today I notice that it has really sunken in. I am already using a convex. I dont have any irritation or anything. I havent had any problems. The stoma is almost below the skin now. How far can it go? When do I notify the doctor? I did put an eakin seal on even though I dont really have to now but I thought it would give me a little more convexity. Will it grow back out?

You should just contact your dr. tomorrow. ASAP. Have him/her look at it to make sure.
Or your ostomy nurse. (that's who helped me)
