Pink-ish ostomy near the skin.

It's been at least 8 months it's been like that, a pink ring around my ostomy. I went to see a stomo-nurse but he said it's probably nothing, but he did say that I was too ''tight'' because he couldnot insert the tip of his little finger inside (yes he had glove and it's normal to do that).

Here a picture if you want http://i.imgur.com/cu9O6HG.jpg 

So im guessing it's probably due to blood who isn't pumped enough there? 

Also Im pretty skinny and lately, because of depression I haven't been eating well and enough for the past 2 years.

I can't see my doctor because it's been more than 5 years I haven't seen her and I need to submit a new appointment since im in a new city and it's been months I have asked for it. The only way to see someone fast is to go to emergency but I don't want to stay 8 hours there just to see someone.

Anyway, if you saw or heard of something like mine, just tell me!

Hello Alastor.

I could not see the picture you said was on the link. However, if it helps, my stoma has had a reddish-pink ring, about 2 inches wide around it ever since I had the operation (?? years ago). it's never been a problem so I've not bothered to ask anyone why it might be there.  My guess is that it is where the colon is nearer the surface than it would be if it was joined to the anus.

 

Hopwe this helps.

Best wishes

Bill

Alastor,

 

The ring is perfectly normal. I've had one ever since I got my ileostomy.

Hello everyone, I re-uploaded my image.

You two speak of something that is there From the start when you had the surgery, I had my surgery in 2004, so it's a long time ago and it's the first time that does that.
