The Indiana Pouch Surgery?

However, it is also a case to case basis. 

Cancer varies from one person to another. The case of one patient is entirely different from the other patient. Reason that, doctor's advice or recommendation is very vital. For example like in the case of having cancer in the bladder. The patient's urinary bladder is removed as a result thereof. With this, it is recommended that the patient should undergo an Indiana pouch surgery. This kind of surgery is proven to be effective, convenient and reduces the possibility of having kidney problem.

But before that, the patient is required to know the needed things to be done before undergoing an Indiana pouch surgery. As part of the post operation requirement, the patient is not allowed to eat solid food and even drink large amount of fluids at midnight before the surgery. This is to avoid excretion of stool during the surgery.

Indiana pouch is surgically made urinary diversion designed to store, eradicate or eliminate the urine of the patient after undergoing a surgery. This kind of pouch is used to hold the urine after the ureter is removed from the patient's bladder. In this stage, the patient is required to be confined in the hospital for seven to ten days for abdominal surgery. There are three drainage tubes place in the abdomen of the patient after the surgery. First tube is placed through the stoma or the small opening in the abdominal wall. The second tube is brought out through another temporary opening in the abdominal wall. The third tube is called the SP tube where the abdominal fluid is drained. In addition, this will entail a lot of process from the time the first tube is taken out of the patient's body and until such time that the patient is now capable of putting in place the catheter into the pouch on specified schedule as prescribed by the doctor. 

It is a very daunting task on the part of the patient to self-catheterize the pouch, emptying the pouch at night and cleaning the pouch to remove the mucus or
bacteria. 

With this, he is in need of someone to assist him all the time particularly from any member of his family. After the patient is healed, he may perform his routine work as he pleases. Except those activity that is clearly prohibited like lifting of heavy things or doing an extraneous work. By following the doctor's advice the patient will never be put into trouble.

Thus, Indiana pouch is more advantageous compared to other surgical process because of the convenience it brings to every patient. Provided that the patient either young or adult alike understand things needed to be done. Likewise, the patient should know how to catheterize the pouch and to follow the instructions on schedule.
