Welcome to HCM forum
As you mentioned that your aunt got colon cancer she undergone colectomy , colostomy done for drainage of food wastage. There is something called "stoma clinic " which is present in mostly tertiary care hospital. They will guide you what to eat how to clean. In a proper way so my advise is to visit to stoma clinic for your query. Take care don't worry
Thank you
