usually within 6 weeks any swelling at the stoma site is gone..a stoma is always supposed to be red,,but not reddened on te skin around it... a red stoma means there is a good  blood supply but it should not be painful as there r no nerve endings in the stoma that would cause pain...the skin around the stoma may cause pain if there is leakage on the skin due to a poor fitting appliance but that is more normal with a ileostomy vs a colstony...what side is ur stoma on///the right or the left?
