Patients worried by Teboho Vincent Mokoakoa

Patients with abdomen complication in Bongani Hospital are in trouble as there is no colostomy bag available.

A colostomy bag is used for patients that who have undergone surgery that brings one end of the large intestine out through an opening made out through an opening made in the abdominal wall. People who usually use colostomy bags are those with abdominal cancer, but it is not limited to them. These bags help patients who have abdominal problems.  They are used for patients who cannot pass Urine and if they do not have bags it can be embarrassing. Patients who need those bags have an opening in their stomach in other words if there is no colostomy bag there is a ole through which stools and urine moves
