I was just thinking. Since surgery, I went from a flat stomach to a decent pudge (only on the lower abdominal area/side pudge) (almost 4 months out).
It's been a while since I've been this squishy.
I'm curious. What happens to your stoma when the space between your inner abdominal wall and your stoma site grows further apart (fat)?
Maybe I'm thinking about it weird, but isn't the intestine stitched to the inner and outer wall?
If so, does it stretch? Does it suck more out of your body to make up the difference? Ha
I have noticed my stoma got slightly longer with some discomfort, but I'm thinking it's just the feeling of getting fat?
Weird question? Haha
Definitely felt nicer having a stoma with a flat stomach. Need to get back there.
