Nephrostomy tube

Postby Steph20021 » Mon Dec 11, 2017 9:07 pm

I got my nephrostomy tube today so another bag to empty along with my ileostomy.
It’s still quite painful and feels like I put my back out. I’ll have home care coming to change the bandage and teach me about it but I hope the tube is temporary and this back pain short lived.
