A colostomy is one of the three main types of ostomy surgeries performed for those that suffer from issues with the lower bowel. Colostomies can be temporary or permanent depending on the health of the colon. During a colostomy, the end of the large intestine is diverted through an incision in the abdominal wall to create a stoma. This new opening is where a skin barrier and a colostomy pouch is attached to collect bile.
Many colostomy supplies are needed after this procedure and sometimes the choices can be confusing to navigate which ones might be best for you. That is why we have Personally Delivered Colostomy Supply Experts to help guide you in your purchasing decisions. We carry one-piece and two-piece colostomy supplies as well as skin barriers, creams, and ointments to protect the peristomal skin.
