Neobladder Replacement vs. Stoma

I've had a urostomy for now 5+ years. I was given the neobladder option and elected not to have it because of the lack of nerves which necessitated wearing adult diapers, which i refused to do. The ease of having a urostomy are: road trips are easy due to pure volume control; reliability of the adhesionsupplies grows each year; visibility for changing wafer and pouch is readily observed. I would not have any other option.

@jshollett, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I appreciate hearing about your success and satisfaction in choosing an urostomy 5 years ago. Might you have some tips about preventing pouch leakage for @katydid77?
