Post-Cystectomy Catheter Use

After an intense surgery, one’s body is unlikely to be in a state that allows it to function independently. IV tubes may be necessary feed and medicate the body, and catheters may be needed to help remove waste. A catheter is a tube designed to be inserted into the body to either help administer medicine or drain bodily fluids. After certain surgeries, catheters are commonly used to allow the patient to pass urine. Some conditions even require permanent catheterization.

Recently, the Type-2 diabetes drug Actos was linked to an increased risk of developing bladder cancer. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with bladder cancer after using Actos to treat Type-2 diabetes, you may be eligible to seek financial compensation.

Using a Catheter

A cystectomy is a surgery where the bladder is removed. It is a kind of last resort for treating bladder cancers that have progressed to advanced stages. After a cystectomy, a patient may have no bladder, and the body therefore has no way to store urine. One of the many options for such patients is to use a catheter with a bag.

A catheter bag is discrete and can be strapped to the inner leg underneath clothing. It can be filled as you walk and it is easy to empty. Using a catheter and bag combination is one of many ways a person recovering from bladder cancer surgery can continue to have a semblance of regular everyday activity.
