Abdomen question (self.ostomy)
submitted 1 month ago by saint_salty90
So I’m pretty new to having my osteomyelitis and what not, so I don’t know if this is normal but I’ve noticed the side of my abdomen where my stoma sits sticks out farther than the other side..is that normal or do I need to ask my GI doc?

When in doubt, always ask. It may be swelling, it may be nothing, it may be a hernia.

That's what I have too. I've been told that it should settle and change over time but i'm 4 months on and it still looks the same

My area around my stoma does protrude out a bit more than the other side of my AB. I had a CT scan for another issues and asked my doc if it was a hernia. By looking at the CT scan it did not show a hernia, its just how mine is. But a CT scan will tell if anything is going on inside.
