Yes, it's an important question only the surgeon will know what to say. There could be risk of adhesions, maybe limiting your option of choosing a neobladder over the pouch or bag. I hope not. On the up side, you've already had a hysterectomy so your surgery won't be as long or complicated.
Hi Maria....what kind of laparoscopic surgery...unless there is a lot of scar tissue it shouldn't make a difference . I would ask the doctor. There are options for a new bladder...there's the neobladder which is pretty successful with men...you have to have a pretty experienced surgeon who's done this on a lot of women and get references of his successes and call them. Men have a longer urethra which makes hook-up a lot easier than with women. Then there is the Indiana Pouch which is a bladder which is internal but you have a stoma where you cath...mine is at the navel..some doctors prefer a lower site...and then there is the external bag or ileal conduit. Do some research on all three.
Just thinking ahead and wanted to ask the ladies about their neobladder surgery.
I have had 2 laparoscopies and a C section in the past, any of you know if this could cause potential problems during surgery?
