What is a urostomy? 

Sometimes it is necessary for urine to bypass the bladder. In this case, a urostomy is performed. A urostomy is an opening in the abdomen that allows urine to pass through. This opening is called a stoma.

What is a stoma?

A stoma is the part of the ureters that are brought to the outside of the body in order to pass water. It is shiny, red and wet, and looks like the inside of your mouth. A stoma may change size or shape after surgery. It does not hurt because there are no nerves.

Reasons for urostomy surgery:

  • Bladder cancer 
  • Spinal cord injury 
  • Other malfunctions of the bladder such as spina bifida

Hints & Tips for someone with a urostomy

  • Drink plenty of water 
  • Eat foods that are high in Vitamin C 
  • Drink a glass of cranberry juice each day 
  • Fish or asparagus may cause your urine to produce an unpleasant smell

Health and Wellness Tip

Laugh every day.  It can release endorphins, the healing hormones, and act as the body’s natural pain killer.  Rent a funny movie or call a friend that makes you laugh.  This can lower your blood pressure and boost your immune system.
