Hello, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
A colostomy is a medical procedure performed in an operating room by a surgeon. This action is done by cutting off the last part of the large intestine that is the best condition, to be connected directly to the abdominal wall through the skin. So in someone who underwent a colostomy, defecation (BAB) out through the abdominal wall which is connected with a bag of stool or feces. This bag will be replaced periodically by the patient or his family. Later, the nurse will teach you how, so you don't need to worry, the way is quite easy.
Colostomy surgery injuries to the abdominal wall, may cause pain in the early weeks after surgery. However, the pain can be minimized by taking pain relievers that doctors prescribe. Later, after 8 weeks, the pain is generally not felt and the surgical wound has improved completely.
Colostomies are permanent or lifelong and some are temporary, depending on the cause of the action. In a permanent colostomy, part of the large intestine, rectum and anus are completely removed because the organ cannot be sustained anymore. For example in cases of colon cancer that has spread to the anus. As for colostomy which is only temporary, the large intestine, rectum and anus are still in good condition. Where later after recovery occurs, the connection will be made again, so that defecation can be as normal.
Someone who underwent a colostomy, will still experience bowel movements and fart or fart like a normal person, but all of them are removed through the stomach wall that has been connected directly to the large intestine. Patients can also experience diarrhea and abdominal pain like other people if there is an infection in the digestive tract.
Therefore some things that must be considered so as not to have diarrhea is to take care of everything that will be eaten. It's best to eat foods that you make yourself at home so that you can maintain cleanliness. In addition, limit foods that can irritate and cause allergies in the digestive tract, such as chili, eggs, milk and its processed products.
