So many stoma birthdays around here recently and today is my turn. It's been one year since I was pronounced the new owner of Sideshow Bob and a lovely new way of life. Cheers to all of us!!

Happy birthday, Sideshow Bob.

Come Easter (I'm not sure of the actual date but I was in hospital over Easter) it'll be 13 for me.

Misty-Eyed... I still feel like it sometimes and it freaks me out. I start running for the toilet and then remember that nothing is going to come out. Ha!

Well, I have a confession, and a question. Once in very great once in a while, I actually DO fart out of me bum. Of course this amazes me, and worries me at the same time! Just a little poot mind you, nothing to compare to Grahame my partners window rattlers.

I must say, it's most...satisfying! However, it makes me wonder if it isn't a wee fistula or something. Let's hope not. Perhaps me bum swallows air and has to belch, who knows???

Once in a blue moon I have a teeny tiny one. Only when I'm trying to use the restroom from the back though.

As for farts - yes I have the occasional small one - I presume the bacteria in the colon can still produce gas?????? But only guessing. Or maybe when the bag is full of gas some slips down the little opening to the lower half ??????

I'm so jealous.
I can't fart.
I had a scope the other week - the gas they pumped in exited in a fart like manner.
But it kinda lacked authenticity.
I was still thrilled by it though.

My stoma farted the other day and my five year old put down his ninja turtle, walked over and gave me a high five.
I was so proud

I think this is the only reason my husband wanted me to have the surgery--for the poo jokes. Hahaha!!
