Hi Eric,
I took a look at your video & envy you. Your stoma is so small & tiny, just like photos I've seen of BCIR stomas. I don't understand why my stoma is about an inch wide & sticks out about half an inch - looks just like the stoma I had when I had my ileostomy. We both had the same surgeon but our stomas look entirely different. - Dixie


I'm curious about this too. I thought it was a difference of the surgeon's technique but if you had the same surgeon then I'm not sure. I also originally thought they were all tiny and different looking than ileostomy stomas. I'm looking into the k-pouch and my surgeon told me it's flush so you can't use a bag if the valve leaks. Some stomas look like you could though, worse case scenario.
