So when I post this I am really just curious... I know it isn't normal lol, but has anyone had, heard, or seen a stoma flip in the opposite direction? Hanging down the way it should, then completely do a 180, a flip all the way back and try and hang backwards lol.

Hi Beth, nope, but before I had resection surgery a few years ago, mine was pulled to the right and into skin level, which caused leaks.

I'm trying to picture what this would look like and can't. Do you mean it inverts?

My 3rd stoma did that. It went to the left and went skin level to partly inside, and this one, which is my 6th stoma, goes to the right lol and moves like a circus act 😁

Not permanently, but temporarily, yes, often over the years they often wriggle about.

I know, it's weird, isn't it? Lol. Must have been the way the doctor broke this one. My last 5 never did it. Lol.

Girl... all in good fun, okay?

That thing... although cute as a... (insert what w30 Bob thought)

  • Shit... I will say it-- nip slip,
  • Ain't no stoma I have ever seen... 😳.
  • We talking an alien worm for sure...
  • Semi-circles.
  • Handstands
  • Timid creature

Now... see if there are some carnivals in town and get a side hustle gig going.

Maybe dress it up and do a ventriloquist show... put a smiley face on it 😊.

"Talk to the stoma"... 😉

🤣 Oh, I love it! The song is so perfect. Oh, I was laughing so hard, and it is so funny you say flubber too because that's what I have been saying. I use an animated voice (I crack jokes all the time) and joke. I go between flubber and Gumby, but that song, gotta say, nailed it lol.

I like the word "carnies," but yes, circus act fits. I was thinking about Jeff Dunham? He, umm, is a professional ventriloquist. Uses dolls. Cracks me up every time. That was the thought, using a stoma like yours. Doing a break dance on your tummy. Never seen before act. Hee hee. 😄
