some patients who have certain kinds of cancers will wear a colostomy bag.

a colostomy is on the left side because the patient has had the last part of their large intestine removed from the sigmoid colon top the anus. that is the last functioning part of their large intestine, so they place the stoma and the colostomy bag in that location, on the left side. if they have a ileostomy, then the bag is on the right side because they have had their entire large intestine removed and the bag collects the fecal matter from the end of the small intestine.
