Is there a difference between a colostomy bag and an ostomy bag?
Yes. An ostomy bag is a small-size water-proof bag used to collect digestive waste from a patient who has had their digestive or urinary system operated on. A colostomy bag is an ostomy bag that is used to collect either firm or loose stool connected to a surgically-operated colon. There are three different types of ostomy bags; a colostomy bag, an ileostomy bag and a urostomy bag.

Who can use an ostomy bag?
Anyone who has had surgery done on the urinary tract or digestive system can use an ostomy bag. Also, any invalid can use a colostomy bag, ileostomy bag, or a urostomy bag depending on their medical condition. Elderly people with failing digestive systems or who are incapable of taking care of themselves can also be fitted with any of these bags depending on their conditions. It makes it easy for their caretaker to maintain their personal hygiene. Anybody can use an ostomy bag if they need one, provided that they choose the one that caters to their needs. This choice depends on such factors as what type of surgery was performed, what kind of waste they want to be collected, the capacity of the bag required, and how it will fit into their daily life.
What are the reasons why one would need an ostomy bag?
There are many reasons that would necessitate the use of an ostomy bag, also called a stoma. Some of the most common ones are surgery related to bowel cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, an obstruction in the digestive or urinary system, among others. These bags are given due to specific medical conditions. A colostomy bag is for a colon-related condition, an ileostomy bag for an ileum-related condition and a urostomy bag for a urinary-system related condition. Ostomy bags facilitate collection of waste which helps to maintain sanitary conditions of the person using the bag. They also help to keep the stoma or area of the urinary or digestive system operating free from infection and give it time to heal. We at Alpha Medical Solutions are dedicated to delivering to you the best colostomy bags that fit right into your schedule.
