can you get a UTI with no bladder?

Once you have a neo-bladder, pouch, or ileal conduit any of those becomes part of the urinary tract. An untreated infection in any part of the urinary tract can become a kidney infection.

I find it very easy to just take my tempature everyday even if I I am feeling well. If you monitor this you may catch something before it gets a chance to get more serious no matter what it might be. Just some sound advice works for me. Joe ;)

The urethra does come out with an Indiana Pouch...i believe it only sticks around with the neobladder.

I continually get UTIs and have been told it is because of the cathing - no matter how 'clean' I keep the procedure. I'm assuming it is an infection in the urethra in the first instance as that is not removed during an RC.

My Uro takes about 6 months to see...HOWEVER..i can go in anytime any day if i think i have an infection and pee into a cup and get the results by the end of the day......how hard could that be. Does she live a million miles away from her URO?
If she doesn't care about it why does she continually worry you about it as she has no plans to do anything about it?

Hi Julieanne,

I wish neo's made one exempt of UTIs, but I get them also. I think I have had 4 in 15 months :S From experience I have learned it is much easier to treat before the kidneys get effected too. The problem for me is that I no longer get the burningor ususal signs, so by the time I realize it is UTI - it has gotten pretty far. Maybe she is dismissing the idea as the usual signs are not present? God Bless, Holly
