6 Thoughts to “Ostomy 101: Colostomy, ileostomy, and urostomy”

  1. Chris

    I have been a belly sleeper for a long time. Once I get into a deep sleep I tend to roll over on my belly and I either break the addheasive seal or something else that causes a leak from the stoma and a wet bed

      you can try a belly band belt that goes around your tummy and hold the bag in place. It’s made of soft cotton so it doesn’t restrict. you can find them at a ostomy supply store. hope this helps

    Is there a way to prevent uti’s. I have been in the hospital several times for them since my surgery last December.

    Is there anyway to reverse the indiana pouch surgery and wear bag on the outside instead. My sis has been in and out of the hospital 8 times in the last 2 months due to this surgery. She developed septis twice, constantly vomiting and nauseated and doctors cant find whats wrong other than septis.

    My sister has been on this colostomy thing for two months however there is still a bit of drainage coming from the stitched area at the belly and also from the stoma, please is it normal.
