In brief: Depends

A colostomy may be permanent or temporary, which depends on several factors.
Ok to ask your doc and your surgeon about temporary vs permanent colostomy. In some emergency cases, the drive to get you well is intense. Then go back to your surgeon for post operative care and discussions about your options.
