Living with Stoma

The word ‘Stoma’ comes from the Greek word that means ‘mouth’ or ‘opening’. A stoma is an artificial opening in the bowel created to bring the bowel to the surface of the abdomen, diverting the flow of faeces or urine1. There are three types of stoma, and the most common are:  

  • Colostomy is an opening into the colon;  
  • Ileostomy opens to the ileum;  
  • Urostomy is an opening into the urinary tract1. 
People will need a stoma for many different reasons, and a stoma can be temporary or permanent depending on its need.  Medical conditions such as inflammatory bowel disorders or cancer of the bowel, rectum or pelvis requiring surgical intervention may require a stoma as part of the treatment plan.
