The way I remember those things is, a temporary colostomy is where waste is redirected into an outside bag, so as to allow the surgery to heal and bowel action to return to normal.  Then they remove the bag, stitch up the bowels like they were before the procedure, and the waste moves regular again and on out the usual route.  Sometimes there is a short period of time for the bowels to get up to speed, so could be there will be diarrhea and digestive upset, but fairly quickly that goes away, and thus there should be no reason to wear diapers and such once digestion resumes its normal activity.  It is important to follow doc's instructions on what to eat and so forth when the bag is taken away, so as to ease the transition with as few accidents as possible.
