My father has had colorectal cancer 6 years ago and is now free of disease. :)
Now for the problems:
Due to the radiations given to his colon,6 years ago,his ureters & bladder have taken a hit and his kidneys bloated with urine.Only one of his kidneys is functional now as the blocked ureters caused hydronephrosis to the kidney and one died.
The doctors suggested a nephrostomy with a pouch on the outside.He already has a bag for his colon cancer by the way.
If the bladder and ureters are all damaged,what options do we have.
I have read about NeoBladder from this forum so far.Any info shared will be helpful to atleast ask the doctors if the second ostomy can be substituted with any other procedure.
