My husband has had bilateral nephrostomies fitted since Feb this year, he had kidney stents before that. His cancer is advanced and diagnosed in 2013 after bladder retention caused him to be admitted to hospital ( we are in UK). It was decided to put him on hormone injections and he has them 6 monthly, Decapeptyl. He had a catheter for 18 months then a TURP which wasn't successful so he self catheterised until the prostate grew over the openings into his bladder hence the nephrostomies. Over the last 5 months he has had pus collecting in his bladder for which our GP gave various antibiotics until we decided to go to A&E and they did a bladder wash. We had to go back to A&E yesterday for another washout. Has any here got any such problem and how have they overcome this problem. We are seeing our Oncologist on Friday so would like a few ideas to discuss with him. He wasn't at ant time given any treatment to shrink the prostate so rely on the hormone treatment up til now.
Sorry this post is rather long and thanks in advance for your help.
