If you have colostomy, ileostomy or urostomy, Apothecary Shoppe Pharmacy carries local ostomy supplies in Douglasville and Villa Rica for easy shopping!
A colostomy is a surgical procedure that brings one end of the large intestine out through the abdominal wall. During this procedure, one end of the colon is diverted through an incision in the abdominal wall to create a stoma. A stoma is the opening in the skin where a pouch for collecting feces is attached. People with temporary or long-term colostomies have pouches attached to their sides where feces collect and can be easily disposed of. A colostomy can be the result of one of several procedures to correct problems with the lower digestive tract. Other 'ostomies' include ileostomy and urostomy. An ileostomy is a similar procedure that applies to the small, rather than the large, intestine. A urostomy is a diversion of the tubes that carry urine out of the bladder.
