Bleeding stoma and hernia

Hi, My Dad had colorectal cancer in 1998, and has had problems with bleeding since then. He can't get anymore blood transfusions now, and is anemic. His Dr. suggested moving the stoma, reparing the hernia. Dad does not want to do this. Anyone had that surgery? Any advice about how to control bleeding? He uses a two piece appliance and I wonder if it is cutting the stoma. He also has a lot of diarrhea. Advice would be appreciated, because his health is deteriorating because of this. He is also diabetic. Depression is becomming a problem.

Thank you,

Deidra
