    Decision Point

    I have about 2-3 months and have to decidem what proceedure I want to have. A bag on the outside, An Indiana proceedure where the bag is inside and a port as big as ur pinky down by ur navel to release the urine about 5-6 times a day. Have to be carefull about infection though and the last is reconstruction bladder
