It is a process that involves flushing water through a colostomy stoma to help regulate healthy bowel movements. By emptying the colon at a scheduled time, the colostomy patient is able to regulate bowel movements. This process should always be recommended by a doctor or nurse and each patient should be carefully taught how to correctly irrigate his or her colostomy.
