Today's videotape is gross. Truly. But there is an important reason why I'm talking to you about colostomies. As a medical malpractice lawyer in New York, I encounter people who have had a colostomy after undergoing surgery where there has been some injury to the bowel. If you don't know what a colostomy is, it's an opening from your belly that allows your fecal content to come out and be captured in a bag that must be changed frequently every day. This allows your intestines to heal. Once your intestines have healed, your surgeon can close the opening and your bowel can return to normal function. Why talk about this? Because if you find yourself in a position talking to someone who has had a colostomy, they may be wondering why they needed this in the first place. Watch the video to learn more.
