What the heck did my stoma just pop out

Mon Sep 13, 2021 6:43 am

A literal sphere the size of a very large blueberry Just pushed it's way out of my stoma.. it's cookie dough color and squishy at first but whatever makes ip the center is cery firm. I have no clue what I ate to make THAT pop out of my body. It's perfectly spherical, it's like my body wants to make boba now. Has anyone else see this at all with their stomas?? I'm super confused as well as in intense pain in my abdomen. I have no clue if my body making or pushing that think out of me is causeing that pain.

Help????

These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

I would take that thing (whatever it may be: something you ate or something more nefarious!) to your surgeons/PCP office ASAP! It normally wouldn't be a big deal (you should see what comes out of mine sometimes!! HaHa) But, the fact that you are experiencing intense abdominal pain, I think it needs addressed right away.

Probably should, I just looked and more of those things popped out.. my bag looks like a boba shake lol. I'll call my surgeon once everything opens up, it's currently 6am haha

That sounds like good advice - Do let us know the outcome!

Hope everything is OK and that thing which now sounds like it's more "Thing'S' popping out isn't anythinf to serious and they manage to get your pain  inner control.  Let us know how you get on. Nat ☺

Could it be a pill?  I had one (oblong shape) pop out once....but no pain associated with it....

It does sound like a pill but it is better to be safe than sorry. Please let us know how it goes. Hope you get good answers.
