Any problems passing anything?
My stoma went really dark red, then it got harder to have output (ie fiber hurt). My doc did an ileoscope, and after that I haven't had any probs. He thought that there was just some kink in the plumbing that needed to be unkinked.
I also notice slightly darker areas if I get a bunch of powder on the stoma. Then it's darker where the powder landed, at the next bag change. Freaked me out at first, but have gotten used to it-I think it's just the powder sucking up the moisture..probably not a good thing, but not really bad either i don't think
