My husband had bladder removed 14 months ago because of cancer and now has conduit. He was in hospital for 6 days recently with kidney infection, placed on iv antibotics and nephrostmy tube placed to drain kidney and stent. Two days later they removed stent, dialated ureter, paced another stent and nephrostmy tube which they removed the next day and sent him home. Now he doesn't feel well nauseated, no appetite with some flank pain. Is this normal? When they remove this stent will he be subject to these type of infections? What happens if he has another stricture or is this possible? Anyone with similiar surgery and how they are handling will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Rita
