In 1971 after my operation, I was asked by the nurses what I was going to call my stoma. This seemed a very strange idea to me and that is why to this day mine has no name, although it does christen itself all day long and all night long every ruddy day, and therefor has been called many different names over it's soon to be 50 years, all of which are rude.
