Does this mean you have an ostomy?

Hello dawolfe.

The definition of an ostomy is:--an artificial opening in an organ of the body, created during an operation such as a colostomy, ileostomy, or gastrostomy; a stoma.

Colonic inertia describes the slow movement of matter through system and does not necessarily mean that a stoma exists. (see link below) 

I hope you find this helpful.

Best wishes

You can have an ostomy (generally ileostomy) BECAUSE of colonic inertia! That is why I have mine, along with pelvic floor issues and some other things.
