Hello,

 

I named mine on day 1. I was shocked to see it. First I was shocked, and blessed to be alive after the whole ordeal. I literally consider it a miracle of God that I lived to talk about it. But when I realized this was my new reality I decided from the getgo to make the best of it, so I decided to have a sense of humor about it from the outset. When I saw the stoma looked like a big pair of lips I thought of Mick Jagger, so so the name stuck. And now I say "I hang out with Mick Jagger" on a regular basis. haha! :-)

Hi, my first ileo stoma was a complete shock and I loathed it so only referred to it as that effin thing. I had a reversal 4 months later and got nearly two years stoma free. My second was a double ended with one part longer than the other. I named it the Danglemouse and Jim (an homage to Spike Milligan's Dinglemouse and Tim). Two years later another reversal attempt which went badly wrong and I got my third and permanent ileostomy which is also named after a volcano, Mount Etna.

Yep,i named my stoma Elmo after St.Elmo....

patron saint of gastric disorders....he was tortured 3 diferent times, 

first he was tortured on the rack(?), angels saved him....

burned at the stake, angels saved him...

third time torturers disembowelled him and wrapped his intestines around a ship's cargo lift!

i saw how similar that was to having a perforation in my cecum that promted an emergency ileostomy 2 months ago
