Name for Stoma

Wed Nov 24, 2021 4:44 am
"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."

My Stoma is called St.Ouma - the patron Saint of Bladderless Bodies. 

In South Africa, Ouma is the Afrikaans word for Granny and also a brand of Rusks which I enjoy.

Funny how I used to hate this thing protruding and dribbling from my stomach until the nurse said I must name it and take ownership of it.... Now we have a great relationship along with all the other items which come with a stoma...

I am just like you because I thought that I was the only one who named my stoma. Then I got this email and saw that you had also named you stoma. I gave my stoma a very silly name. I named it Shlomo the Stomo. Now I know that it is not a stomo. Convatec (the company that makes the product I use) made a video of me and I explain why I named it that in the video. Here is the link to that video:https://drive.google.com/file/d/1q1KP5wpWugARBh6lb9Zb2mIajMmvEtHh/view

We have so much in common because I also named my stoma. I gave it a silly name. I named it Shlomo the Stomo. I know it is not a stomo but it rhymes with Shlomo. The company that makes the product I use, Convatec, made a video of me and in that video I explain why I named it Slomo.

I named both my stoma and bag, my stoma is Chucky, from the movie Childs Play, because he's a little shit that does whatever he wants, and the bag is Phillip.... No explanation needed

That is funny, I had to laugh when I read that.  Not laughing at you, mind you, just  the way you describe the stoma and the bag.  We have to have humor in our life or we would go crazy!

Hello to you and your Stella...you never gave us the reason why it's a Stella?  

Mine is Seymour, after the shop assistant in "Little House of Horrors" also know as my current body....

when I woke up from my emergency surgery and looked down at that moving part on my belly all I could think of was "feed me Seymour"
