The size of your abdomen and new Ostomy stoma is going to be very large for a first few days and may also ooze out blood. This is something normal after Ostomy surgery you should not worry about. Your stoma will reduce in size considerably in the next 2-3 months. Before you reach this stage you might need the post-operative Ostomy systems that are flexible and designed keeping in mind the needs of new Ostomates. Post-operative systems are generally large and clear bags that help surgeons and nurses monitor your stoma size, shape and output.
During your stay in the hospital in the first 2-3 days your Ostomy nurse will train you on how to clean your stoma and change your Ostomy bag. They will also inform you about the type of Ostomy bags available in the market and which one suits your Ostomy. Other important products that help you manage your Ostomy better include adhesive/adhesive removers (sprays or wipes), skin barriers (paste, spray, wipe or strips), skin protectants and powders, Ostomy belts etc. It will take a few days for your stoma to produce output as your bowel movements will stop for a few days after surgery. Start with eating small but regular meals. All this will pass and you will get settled with your new Ostomy in a few weeks of surgery.
