If you want to see how stomas are made click here http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/surgeryvideos.html
 
Then scroll down under the Digestive System heading...then click on Total Proctocolectomy for Synchronous Colon and Rectal Cancer
 
The surgeon performing this surgery decides to give the woman a temp. ileostomy.  The surgery is open so you can see the intestines and the creation of the stoma.  I think this is really neat but I would not eat red jello while watching the video.

I have had an ileostomy for 31 years now due to UC.

I watched most of it,  tho I will have to say that I had sympathy pains when they "opened" her.  And we wonder why our bellies hurt so doggone bad after surgery!
