Thanks.  Odd that no one responded.  I assume I get feedback about stomas, but maybe I worded it badly.

FarRed,

I just wanted to acknowledge your question is being seen. However, I don't remember many if any older posters with this. Perhaps someone with insight will chime in.

It certainly seems to be a doable option to me.

I'm twelve years with a neo bladder.  I recently caught up to one of the surgeons who oversaw my initial surgery.  He remarked that he rarely sees anyone with my type of surgery because he's had to reverse so many over renal function, that is. it's too hard on the kidneys.  My blood labs look ok, but should it go south, I'd be looking at dialysis--just shoot me.  Based on his warning and that I'm still incontinent at night, I'm wondering if moving "my plumbing" to stoma might be a better option.  I'd keep the neobladder of course.  

Has anyone taken this route? Thoughts?  Problems with neo-bladder and stoma?
