About
I have a permanent ileostomy, and I had the surgery at the start of March 2022. It was j-pouch reversal. I had my first stoma for about 18 months from November 2013 - April 2015. My new Stoma's name is Michael, short for Michael Kors. One of the healthcare assistants on the ward named him - I was saying to her how my catheter was my Gucci handbag, and my drain was my Versace handbag ( 😂 ) and by the time it got removed, my morphine pump was my Givenchy. So I asked the healthcare assistant, “what should my stoma be?” She paused for a second, thought about it, and then offered “Michael Kors?” So I paused for a second, thought about it, and replied back, “yeah, OK! It's as good a name as any other!” And that's how my stoma is now Michael!
