2 Colostomy Bags

Does anybody have 2 colostomy bags???

My sister has stage 4 colon cancer that has spread to the liver. She had emergency surgery and has ended up with 2 permanent colostomy bags, i have never known of this before and am rather confused.

Question Re: 2 Colostomy Bags

I was originally fitted with 2 bags; but I believe 1 was removed as being unnecessary

Re: 2 Colostomy Bags

I ignored quite obvious signs and continued with a life style which was possibly terminal. I have been ill ever since I returned from Vietnam in 1969. Constant skin rashes and due to P.T.S.D., Anxiety and behavour issues. Epilepsy hit me very suddenly[NO prior warnings] I am unable to care for myself and so live in a hostel with constant Nursing care.

Re: 2 Colostomy Bags

Apparently the second bag my sister has is for mucus and gas.
