Name for Stoma

This is a great community. Consider joining.

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... 

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
