    Sigmoid stoma size. I?ve has my colostomy for 11

    I have a sigmoid colostomy that has a oval shape 1in x 7/8in. What?s the average size of this type of stoma? I feel like mine is too small. For those who have a colostomy What size is your stoma. Thanks

    Mines about that size Julian. The enlarge and shrink thruout the day. I have SIgmoid loo[ also. I've found if the stool is too watery, I take an immodium once in the morning and it seems to make things more clay like consistency. I think the Immmodium tk=akes the water out or the colon.
