my mother has had a colostomy now for 17 yrs, everyonce in awhile, she will eat the wrong kind of foods and wont be able to pass it, causing her stoma to close up, so at least once a month she has to dilate it, using her pinky finger she inserts it in the stoma and opens it up. this is what her doctor taught her to do. hope this helps
