     I have a permenant Colostomy that will be three years old this June 9th.I had my rectum removed on March 30th of this year,now I may be facing a Urostomy.If possible I would like to hear from as many females out there, that have one,that can help me.I would some information as to,how was the surgery done,and where was the Urostomy placed at.Are you able to go swimming,wear shorts,and differnent types of clothing like that.
    The Urologist I see,has tried me on all kinds of medicine out there,but they all effect my Restless Leg Syndrome,so I can not take them.I go back to him the first of next month and he will do some more testing,and will give me some sort of an answer soon,I hope.I am up any where 3 to 5 times a night going to the bathroom.I can only lay on my stomach,because I have a bad back.Everytime I lay on my sides and bring my knees up,with in an hour or so I have to get up and go to the bathroom.I also can not go 5 miles down the road with out having to stop and go use the rest room.It is reallly getting to be a pain and I am not getting much sleep with having to get up half the night to go to the bathroom.
     So,If there are any Females out there that have a Urostomy I sure would like some information on what ever you can give me.
      Thanks for readint this,and hope to hear from some one soon.

I think the UOAA site's discussion board has a Urostomy section...you may want to check it out!
