I don't know why you would use a suppository with a colostomy bag at all. Firstly, it wouldn't stay inside without an anal sphincter which you are clearly not using at the moment. Does the medication need to be taken as a suppository. Constipation; get medical advice.
Actually get medical advice about both.
It depends on the surgery you had, what kind of suppository. If you are feeling constipated a mild lax might help. We used to irrigate colostomies in that circumstance.
