Bladder cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers that affects both men and women. Bladder cancer can often be found early because it causes blood in the urine or other urinary symptoms such as;
1. Blood in the urine (called hematuria) is the first sign of bladder cancer
2. Having to urinate more often than usual
Pain or burning during urination
Feeling as if you need to go right away, even when your bladder isn’t full
Having trouble urinating or having a weak urine stream
Having to get up to urinate many times during the night
TREATMENT OPTIONS:
UROSTOMY…. A urostomy is an opening in the belly (abdominal wall) that’s made during surgery. It re-directs urine away from a bladder that’s diseased or not working as it should. The bladder is either bypassed or removed.
After this surgery, urine is passed out of the body through an opening on the belly called a stoma.
DISCOMFORTS OF UROSTOMY:
1.You will not be able to start or stop urine coming out through the stoma, so you might need a pouch to collect the urine as it comes out.
2. Urostomy pouches need to be changed 1 to 2 times a week. It is important to follow a schedule for changing your pouch.
3. If your colostomy bag is not seated around your stoma properly it can leak air,odor, and even fecal contents.
4. Might lead to depression in patients as he/she may find it hard to get exposed to the society. It always causes uneasiness and discomfort.
