Sorry I can't help you with this one, but chances are someone will be on that can soon. Lots of good people on this site to answer questions. Hope all works out for you and you can solve the problem with the infections.

I'm just a year with my urostomy, but I got the 'old fashioned' one without the artificial bladder, just the stoma and bag. Take care and wish you well.

C U,
Bill

Here's a web site that you get may have a better chance at getting an answer at: https://www.c3life.com/ostomy/community/forum.aspx

I think there's a lot more activity on the www.c3life.com site than this one, and more people available to provide answers quicker.
