Hi, I have had bladder problems since birth, I have had so many operations to try and fix the problem. I had my bladder removed November last year. Since having my bladder removed I have had two kidney infections and having sepsis. Both times had to be admitted to southmead hospital and have to stay in for 1- 2 weeks. Does any one have the same problems and know what I can do to try and prevent them happening. I at my wits end please could some one be able to help me try and sort these infections happening. Thank you all¬†
I had my bladder removed in 2010. ¬†I have experienced infections. ¬†I try to not let my bag get too full by emptying often. ¬†I try to limit stress, and not get overtired and allowing the immune system to be overcome. ¬†I always use an overnight bag when lying down. ¬†If I feel an infection coming on, a slight fever, back pain, dizzy, I immediately begin an antibiotic and contact my dr. ¬†With no bladder these infections will not resolve by themselves. ¬†I hope this helps. ¬†Good luck to you.
Thank you for your kind message, that has helped me a great deal. I am still trying to get to grips with my stoma, I had my bladder removed in November last year.
Since I have had my bladder out I have had¬†pneumonia , then a kidney infection that led to sepsis, and now I am back in with sepsis again.¬†
You have helped me a lot with what you have told me.¬†
Thank you so much you are a diamond
