Stoma re siting / refashioned

Hi, has anyone had a stoma re sited or refashioned and how was your recovery, and how long in hospital? thanks

  • Hello Claire

    I was going to have mine moved to the left side of my body to remov the hernia I have.

    Due to redundancy, starting a new job, and now COVID, it’s not been done yet, but I was told that, in my case, the recovery was estimated at three months.

    This may just be for me, but they would move it my stapling a titanium plate to my backbone, and then tie the stoma to that, thus moving it to the left side..perhaps one day I will have it done, but I cannot afford to take three months off work when my company will only pay full pay for a month 

    Hope this helps

    Andy
