Almost a nurse!

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I will be graduating on June 19, 2003 from LPN school. I am a urostomate of 5 years and I will be working with a urologist in an office setting after graduation. I am very excited about this. Being able to work with paitents who are kindred spirits is something I have been wanting to do for some time. It's nice to have a message board exclusive to Urology. Nice to meet you all.

    Congratulations.... and what the heck is a urostomate?

    A urostomate is someone who has a urostomy. I had a cystectomy with an ileal neo bladder 6 years ago but the neo bladder failed which meant I needed an ileal loop diversion. So that is what they call us....Better than bag lady!
