Neobladder problems

6 years 9 months ago #45327 by Cynthia
Judy I am sorry you and your husband are having such problems but welcome. The reason you have not gotten a lot of answers yet is that not a lot of people here have had your husbands ureter problem. Three years ago I had surgery to deal with a ureter that was blocked by scar tissue. They placed a stent after removing the blockage that stayed for several weeks. We check my blood work keep a close eye on my blood pressure about every two months, and so far everything is fine. Hope this helps and all goes well with your husband.

My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer in February. In April they removed the bladder, prostate, and part of urethra, and created a neo-bladder from intestinal tissue. It worked well for about a month, then developed scar tissue and stopped working for the most part. So, since May, he has had nephrostomy tubes directly out the back from the kidneys into drainage bags. He has had 6 rounds of chemo since June, and we are looking at surgical repair of the bladder (where the ureters go into it).

If the surgery caused the scar tissue, how is surgery is good repair?

Does anyone have any of this same experience?
