My father has stool problems and he has them for a while. He visited a doctor for that and it turned out to be a colon cancer. He had to go for a surgery and told him that he will have to temporarily use stoma for ejecting fecal content. After that a reconstruction of his intestines will be done. What is life with stoma like?

Stoma represents an aperture in abdominal wall. That is actually a connection between the inside of intestines and the outer environment. There is always a plastic bag (to put it simple) on it for that fecal content. The most important thing here is hygiene, because feces are full of bacteria that might complicate the situation. It is not an easy life but it must be endured.
