    Does anyone have insight into how to live with nephrostomy tubes?  Can you take a shower?  What has been your experience?  Thank you in advance...

      18 years ago my dad had seed impants.  He has for a year now had urinary trouble.  He has a suprapubic catheter---for the past year.  AND he has had a lot of pain upon sitting.  Just recently he has had nephrostomy tubes and now a colostomy.  He is hospitalized currently and now has been diagnosed with rectal cancer.  We do not know the stage yet.

            I'd like to know if you find a management solution.  My dad has severe pain and he was just diagnosed today.  We don't the stage yet, but I desperately want to see him manage this pain that keeps him from sitting.  This is no life for him, among other things.
