    What you need to know about Colostomy in South Korea

    Colostomy Surgical Procedure

    Colostomy refers to a surgical procedure that creates an opening (stoma) in the large intestine (colon) to let waste leave your body. The procedure is performed on people with lower bowel problems, such as blockage, injury, colorectal cancer, colonic polyps, and colorectal cancer. Colostomy can be permanent or temporary. 

    What does a Colostomy Procedure Involve?

    A colostomy is performed under general anesthetic. Your surgeon will bring one end of the large intestine through the abdominal wall. Then, a ring will be surgically implanted into the abdominal wall to hold the end of the intestine in place. The final step is closing the wound with stitches. 

    How Long Should I Stay in South Korea for a Colostomy Procedure?

    Some people will need to stay in the hospital for about 3 to 10 days after a colostomy. After you are discharged from the hospital, you will need to attend hospital check-ups and for the stitches to be removed, therefore, plan to stay in South Korea for at least 14 days.
