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.Frown

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.


Advance thanks!
