HI

 

I want to know whether your doctor is planning to make an opening with a bag attached to it to collect the urine .

 

Surgery depends on what type of opening are they going to do.

Hi--I understand that you're having difficulty here but let me try to answer and we can continue after this if you need to. I think the procedure that's suggested for you will entail removing your bladder entirely and attaching the ureters--the tubes that usually allow urine to travel from the kidneys to the bladder--to a short section of your ileum--the last part of your small intestines--that has been removed from the rest of the intestines and then that part is brought out through the abdominal wall so that the urine can drain and a bag is put over the ileostomy--the end of that part of the ileum that is on the abdominal wall. The entire procedure would usually take about two to two and a half hours
