new to my Urostomy so I'm doing a lot of research on appliances, reviews, how-to's, YouTubes, etc. I am having a beef with how the word 'Ostomy' is thrown around. From what I understand, there are basically 3 types of Ostomies (Colostomy, Ileostomy and Urostomy). When I find an article or YouTube, etc., they use the 'Ostomy' term in the title and it most always is about Colostomies/Illeostomies). I am hoping to find something on Urostomies but invariably, 98%, it turns out not to be on Urostomies. So you never can tell what the info is going to be about until you open the article. Waste so much time.
There is a tremedous amount of info on Colostomies, but very little on Urostomies, in comparison. But it is driving me a bit crazy that the general term of 'Ostomy' seems to be synonymous for 'Colostomies'. Maybe I am wrong, but it makes it so difficult and time consuming to track down info on Urostomies. I can click on a 'Ostomy' topic only to find it is not about Urostomies, over and over again. I wish the industry and Internet postings would be more mindful of the proper terms so we don't waste our time searching and not finding the topic we think it is about. Is it just me???
Just my 2-cents and blowing of a bit of steam...
