Stoma resiting

Hi has anyone had their stoma moved to the other side and what does it entail? recovery time, pain etc, thank you

    yes I have as my original one didn’t form properly. Mine was moved up about 4 inches. At the time I was desperate for a working stoma but in hindsight I should of thought more about where it was going to go as now it restricts me wearing most trousers. If I remember the recovery was good and after a couple of weeks I was back to normal
