My husband had his bladder removed over 3ys ago and had a cystectomy with an ileal conduit, my question is that he keeps getting infections and we are having a hard time keeping up with them. we check his urine directly from the stoma and send it out, keeps coming back with a different bacteria. has anyone gone thru similar situations and what do you do to stay on top of them..
