Hi, I would like to know if anyone has had the experience of their stoma retracting back into the abdominal wall. It was flat, if not slightly inverted today. I had just changed my appliance and left for church, drove 10 minutes, and got ready to get out, and I was a mess. I returned home to find out that my stoma was gone; it had retracted within my abdominal wall. So all my output seeped under my protective sheet and Coloplast convex flip barrier flange.
Has anyone heard of this happening? I waited for 40 minutes, and she finally came out again. This has happened 1 time before, but she returned quickly. I will call my surgeon tomorrow, but in hopes someone has some suggestions.
