How big is your stoma?

So my Dot (Ileostoma) is about 8 days old now. At first it was 45mm/45mm. But now it has shrinked down to 33mm/34mm.

How big is yours? :)
It was quite a long time ago - in 2000 - but I think that it took about 2 months to get to its current size.
Thanks for all your replies :)

So mine will probably shrink a little more, which would be awesome :)

Still having a hard time getting used having my Dot, but its getting better each day.
It will get better :) I've had mine 5 months now and I forget its there most of the time it's just a very small part of daily life to change/empty.good luck :)
