Drainable One System Colostomy Bag
Drainable One System Colostomy Bag: A colostomy is surgery to create an opening called a stoma. The opening creates a passage from the large intestine to the outside of your body. This is so that solid stool and gas can leave the body through the stoma instead of passing through the rectum. The waste is collected in a pouch worn on the outside of the body. A colostomy can be temporary or permanent.

What is the large intestine?
The large intestine is the lowest section of the digestive system. It has two parts, the colon and the rectum.
The large intestine is below the small intestine, where nutrients are digested and absorbed into your bloodstream. Material you cannot digest moves from the small intestine into the colon. The colon absorbs water from the waste material and then stores it until your next bowel movement.
This illustration shows the 5 sections of the colon and rectum. The ascending colon is the beginning the large intestine into which the small intestine empties; it begins on the lower right side of the abdomen and then leads up to the transverse colon. The transverse colon crosses the top of the abdomen from right to left, leading to the descending colon, which takes waste down the left side. Finally, the sigmoid colon at the bottom takes waste a few more inches, down to the rectum. A cross-section of the rectum and sigmoid colon shows where waste leaves the body, through the anus.
