Managing Ileal Conduit

Learning you need an ileal conduit may seem overwhelming. You may feel overwhelmed by the challenges and changes ahead of you. It’s important that you know what to expect as you adjust and learn to care for yourself after your operation, so that you can feel comfortable and confident and have as full and active a life as possible.

If your doctor has ordered home care services from VNSNY, your care team will give you detailed information that is specific to your needs. VNSNY’s Self-Care Guide for the Management of Ileal Conduit can answer general questions and give you the information you need between visits.
