Living with a Stoma -- The Patient Perspective is a video diary part of The Secure Start Video Diaries produced by Hollister. Having ostomy surgery is life changing and challenging. There two basic types: the intestinal diversion which is a colostomy and ileostomy and the urinary diversion or urostomy. A stoma is created where you eliminate your body's waste (either stool or urine). The stoma is a piece of bowel that is surgically attached to the abdomen and is approximately the size of a quarter. Everyone varies in size, but the stoma is vascular and sensitive requiring a gentle touch.
