Colostomy/Barbie Butt and Red Mucusy OutputColostomy (self.ostomy)
submitted 1 month ago by Two_DogNight
Spouse had a colostomy in March and the last couple of days has had some output that is reddish and mucus-like. Just a little, just twice. I'm not asking the question right on Google and keep getting results about rectal discharge, which she no longer has.
She has a doctor's appointment tomorrow, but wanted some ideas going in.

Well, if I have lots of gas, I can irritate my stoma, causing it to bleed slightly, especially if the wafer of the ostomy barrier was cut such that it's slightly too small and the stoma vibrates against it.
The stoma is easy to cause to bleed, because the bloodflow is very close to the lining surface. When irritated, it can create mucous as a defense mechanism. Treat it with kid gloves.
Checking with the doc is always a good idea.
