(EN) – Glossary of Ostomy Terms | Vegan Ostomy


Terms like, “pancaking” or “burping” may sound like they’re describing a Sunday brunch, but in reality, ostomates have many clever words to describe what’s going on in their lives.

On this page, you’ll find a list of common terms that ostomates use, as well as their meaning. It will help you to understand some of the articles I have on this site, as well as forum posts on the Community Forum.

It is by no means complete and is entirely a work in progress, so if you have a word suggestions, just leave them in the comment section at the bottom of this page and I’ll be more than happy to add them.

 Remember that terms used may vary from country to country.
