What's yours called ?.

I never thought I'd end up naming my stoma, but I have !, I thought it was a bit like men naming their tackle
His name is .......drum roll.......Squirter McWhirter , and I'm rather fond of him
So what's yours called..if anything ?.

I tried naming my first stoma after a nurse who'd been really good to me in hospital, but it just felt weird giving it a name. Maybe that's a good thing since my stomas don't tend to stick around very long, I had three in under a year. I'm not naming this one, but I hope this one stays!

I had a temp end stoma called Chaos and a temp loop stoma called havoc. Havoc earned it's name. If I ever get another one I'm going with Chaos again. It was a good stoma.

I call my stoma Rooty Tootie. It took me awhile but I came up with it. My step grandfather's nickname was Tootie because of how much gas he had. So, Tootie was a pretty obvious fit for my stoma, because of all of the increased gas after surgery.

I said goodbye to my one 5 years ago this week. My colleagues had very helpfully called it "Predator". I think it's a man thing, not a girlie name!

Still have my temp ileo (had surgery today in hopes we could reverse my ileo after gracilis muscle procedure for fistula, but it needs more healing and CRS had to do another repair first). I do, however, affectionately refer to mine as Mr. Darcy.
