Small stoma help

I went for my routine check-up of my stoma.I told the nurse about having trouble with pancaking, she said this is a trial and error situation, BUT upon looking at my stoma she said oh this is small, have you had your ollow up with the surgeon I said yes and that he had a look via the bag window, she said he may need to make it bigger, i was upset to say the least. She said whilst its working they may leave it but if it starts to cause me problems they would prob need to make it bigger.

Has any had this done for whatever reason? And any advise on what to do to help keep the stool soft .
