Have you named your stoma?

Posted by Sasquatch, on Wed Mar 22, 2017 8:09 am

Deuce Pooper is what I like to call mine.

I call mine Stumpy the Stoma.  He (I wonder why I think it is a he?) looks like a little stump of something.

I call my stoma Oscar after The Odd Couple. Guess which role is mine? It makes it easy to talk about when other people around.

No need to apologize for your sense of humor, Bill, I thought your post was quite funny - chuckle funny.

Your research turned into an interesting, enjoyable post.

Hello  suzeekew.

Thanks for your post and your feedback on the humour. It always feels good to know that someone, somewhere shares a similar sense of humour, even if it is a bit obscure in presentation.

Best wishes

Hello Paull0288.

Does your 'why?' mean - what reasons are there? If so, can you be a little more precise as to what subject you are asking the question about so that we can focus more accurately on trying to find some answers.


Best wishes

I had never named my urostomy anything but after I had gotten my ileostomy the stoma nurse suggested that I should name them both so after much thinking I came up with Rosie for my uro and Winnie after Winnie the Pooh for my ileostomy.

I call my stoma Oscar. The reason is that my husband is a Felix and I am an Oscar as is, of course, my ostomy can be messy, too, sometimes.

Partly due to my ostomy only being temporary, I haven’t given my stoma a nickname. However, when I was taking a bath last night I was thinking how it’s like a spigot or a tap on the outside of my body. Then I thought, so it’s a "crap tap"! Laughed myself silly for a few minutes. So, unofficially, that’s its nickname. ;-)

Hello Scout Finch. Thanks for the smile you  gave me this morning.

 I do like the 'crap-tap' label as it is so functionally descriptive and can be used as a generic term for all feacal stomas.

I've named mine T.C. for Tummy Cork. 

Reply by heavensown australian she, on Sat Apr 28, 2018 3:59 pm

I named mine Ill because it makes me ill as crap all the time. It leaks at the worse possible time in the world it could.  I hate it but again as said in previous post it did save my life along with chemo and other drugs.

I still haven't named it but was thinking "Skip".  Now I can skip the butt cleaning part.

Chucky.... Because it's the devil

He will leak even after I've just showered and changed, only to find a pile of bile in my lap

I can go see the loudest action movie ever, but he will wait for the quietest passage to gurgle and fart

I used to refer to him as my little buddy, he is anything butt​

I'm tired of sleeping on my back, I'm a side sleeper, but it deforms the disc and it leaks

Just being honest here, this sucks! But that can be life in general, so I try not to complain.

I am thankful for my current health, such as it is, I realized I had a successful surgery with no complications. I will win, been a fighter all my life.. FU Chucky, you ain't holding me back!

You should make an appointment with your Stoma nurse so they can help you find a product that will work better for you. Try Marathon No Sting Cyanpacrylate Skin Protectant by Medline. It is really strong and could help your bag and barrier to not leak. Let us know how you do OK?  Good luck!  Pamela

Have you tried a pillow between your legs? I am a side sleeper, and the pillow prevents me from rolling onto my belly. WHen that happens, I wake up to an explosion. I also have pads in between the sheets and mattress. It is cheaper to replace a set of sheets, rathewr then replace a mattress.

Love your response!

Mine will be 7 weeks tomorrow.  I called him Lucky for several reasons.  Lucky to be here at all and lucky for me it works.

Had the name right away, but couldn't look at it for the first month.  We're getting to know each other, and I agree with others, very protective of him/her.

I am the same way....Lucky to be here, so therefore, I am giving others reassurance, along with support. I used to be a very negative person, and I am thinking all of this happend to me for a good spread the benefits of looking on the brighter side on everything. We could be very well looking at the grass roots, instead of the green grass.
