I would like to direct this to all females that have had a Urostomy. I have a permenant Colostomy that was done three years ago this coming June 9,th, and I just had my rectum removed on the 30th of March,this year. No I found out that I may be looking at surgery to have a Urostomy done. I was just wondering if there are any females out there that may have one,and if so,could you please give some information about it. Like how was your surgery done,where did they put it,and how long were you in the hospital???? I would like to know as much as I possibily can. The Urologist said that he did not know if he would have to remove my bladder or just by pass it. He would know more,once he has some more test done on me,and then for sure once he got inside and started the surgery. I have had four bladder surgeries done in the past years.Three of them have just been tucked back up,and the fourth was put in to a net,but it only held for a few week. Now I have the Inter Stem Implant,and it is not doing the job any more.Everytime I lay on my sides at night I am up going to the bathroom at least 4 to 5 times a night,and can not lay on my back as I have a bad back.So I am just a mess and wonder about the Urostomy.If the doctors has second thoughts about it,I would to know enough about it,to push for one.
Thank you for reading this and hope to hear back for some of you females that may have one.
Thank you San's
