Protruding stoma
I can not wear jeans or anything tight around my waist area because I feel my stoma protrudes to far out.  Has anyone had and or has this same problem? And how did you rectify it? I would really appreciate any suggestions you may have.

There are very many positives to having a protruding stoma because it makes the wafer less likely to leak.  If this is permanent and not a temporary stoma, you may one day look at getting it revised surgically.  How far does it protrude?
