    Hi Jay,
    I found I had bladder cancer in Jan.2013. I will start chemo on 3/28/13. I have some questions about your Indiana Pouch. Have you had any trouble with infection? Do you have to irrigate the stoma and pouch. I will have my bladder removed in six months and must make a decision at that time on what kind of bladder to have. Thank you for your help. I apperciate the help you have posted.

      Cushman,
      I don't exactly what you are looking for, but if your bladder must be removed then ask if you are a candidate for a neobladder or a XXX pouch, this way you will not need any exterior collection bags. I am an oncology nurse and I know this is the preferred choice of many patients. Best of luck to you, Carm RN.
