A colostomy is a surgical procedure in which one end of the large intestine (colon) is diverted into a visible opening, known as stoma, on the patient’s abdomen to eliminate the body wastes. It is also referred to as bowel diversion therapy which is performed to reduce, stop or heal the infection, blockage, or in rare cases, severe trauma of the colon when the patient is suffering from problems with the lower bowel. After the surgery, a small pouch or a colostomy bag is placed over the stoma to collect the waste products. These bags are usually made of skin friendly materials, such as rubber or plastic, and facilitate easy disposal of the waste.
