I have had bladder cancer. I had my bladder replaced with the neobladder last February. I have been very happy with my new bladder. I have control during the day for the best part. I wear a pad just to be safe during the day and depends at night. I will get a little squirt when my new bladder is full and I am trying to hold it back if I pickup something or bend etc.. I have never had to catherize myself but I find I get a better void when I sit. I have not been able to use the urinal with much success. However I have had some problems with a small amount of BM when I push to urinate. Maybe I am pushing too hard.
I have not had a normal bowl movement since the operation. I get constipated for several days then I have diarrhea for several days and just about every time I sit to urinate a little BM comes and I feel that I am going to have a BM all day, every day. Has anyone else ever had a problem with BM's since getting the neobladder?
