Diagnosis and pre-op
Hearing that you will need a urinary diversion can come as a shock. When you are first told this news, it can be hard to take in any information about the surgery and your options.
We are here to help you practically and emotionally by providing both clear information and peer-to-peer support. We will do that at this early stage, as well as being here for you after your surgery and as you get back to living a full life.
