I have 2 stomas, an Ileostomy 22 years and a Urostomy 2 years.
I was taken ill with what I thought was flu, got worse and was eventually rushed into hospital into HDU as it was found I had Urea Sepsis, I was very poorly and told one hour later I would not have made it...
I have recovered and pleased too, but I learned the other day that it was caused do to the conduit most likely tilting backwards, causing a severe infection.
I am due for some tests now which I am waiting for, but I was told that there is a possibilty that the conduit may have to come out.I have only my right kidney, what I would like to know is, if they don't use a conduit, how do that do the operation, using what?...
I know I should have asked at the time, but I got scared to ask, now I am puzzled and would like to know if anyone here does know what would be used.
Thankyou for reading..
