I had my stoma revision surgery Tuesday.
There were no surprises.
No real pain, or at least nothing any worse than when your output compromises your wafer and you get that lovely burning sensation.
I do have a sensation of a change in structural integrity in the area so I'm getting used to the new sensations (yay).
My stoma isn't the much vaunted rosebud but it is a little above the surface now. The opening used to be about what you'd expect from a 9mm hit and now it's a honking .45.
My stoma output is thicker (but that's subject to change) and gas output is less (also subject to change).
I didn't see the ostomy nurse.
They didn't give me even a couple of pouches to tide me over until I could order some the right size. Luckily I never throw out an unused pouch and I had a couple of larger/trimmable ones laying around.
Heck they didn't tell me what size my stoma was now so I had to wait for pouch change to measure it myself.
Luckily my work lets me work from home so instead of blowing a weeks worth of leave next week I can pick up a few hours each day.
