- What are the Different Types of Stoma?
Below, we are mentioning different types of stoma.
- Colostomy: A stoma that is with part of your colon (large intestine) to bypass your rectum. A colostomy can be temporary if your colon just needs to heal. You might need a colostomy if you are suffering from the colon or rectal cancer, a colon injury, or a blockage in your colon.
- Urostomy: When your doctor makes a small pouch using your small intestine, this is known as urostomy. You need a urostomy if your bladder is diseased or damaged.
- Ileostomy: A stoma is created using your small intestine so that waste can bypass your colon and rectum. This is the most common type of temporary stoma. You may need an ileostomy if you are suffering from Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or bowel cancer.
Livonta Home Care offers comprehensive stoma care services to the patients.

- Is it Reversible?
Depending on your health condition, you need either a permanent or temporary stoma. If your bowels or bladder aren’t entirely damaged, your stoma might be reversible. Your doctor will tell you before surgery whether your stoma will be permanent or not.

During reversal surgery, your doctor will retort the ends of your intestine and sew the ostomy opening closed.
