After Bladder Cancer surgery, urinary continence and the use of external urine bags is often an issue for many patients.
These issues can last for a few months or be a lifetime change. Your surgeon will most likely connect you with a Continence Nurse, a Physiotherapist who specializes in pelvic floor, and perhaps some other experts to get help.
It is important that you search out every option to achieve the best outcome.
Companies like Independence Australia, who supply continence products, can be a great help.
Most Capital Cities have a hospital with a free Continence Clinic. Find them and get ideas and help.
The Australian Government, through Medicare, offers the Continence Aids Payment Scheme for people who become incontinent, where you can receive an annual payment towards pads, bags etc.
