ABSTRACT:
A colostomy is a procedure in which a portion of a person's colon (i.e., the lower part of the bowels) is removed, and an opening is created in the abdomen so that the person can expel waste from the body. As a result, the opening is created, person's quality of life is negatively impacted, as they may find it difficult to function in social and professional settings, struggle with issues of sexuality and body image, and struggle with stoma function. The current study intends to evaluate patients who visit a certain hospital's outpatient department quality's of life with colostomies. Using a purposive sampling technique, a sample of 27 patients who walked into the outpatient section were chosen. A common tool called the City of Hope - Quality of Life Questionnaire was used to collect the data. 89% (24 participants) of the subjects reported having a good quality of life with a colostomy and scored higher than 114. The mean quality of life score that the subjects achieved after getting a colostomy was 182.04 and the standard deviation was determined to be 51.2. The study's findings showed that there was no significant relationship between demographic traits and the categories of quality of life, and this study highlights the necessity to carry out a comparable study with a large sample that can be duplicated in different contexts. The COH - QOL subdomains can be used to assess the quality of life in depth.
