A full cystectomy is the surgical removal of the bladder. This is done to treat muscle invasive bladder cancer. An ileal conduit urinary diversion is the method most commonly used for treating bladder cancer (Ping Han and Qiang Wei, 2007). An ileal conduit is where a tube is made using a piece of the ileum. This tube runs from the kidneys to a surgical opening in the abdomen. This opening allows urine to drain into a stoma that is located on the abdominal wall (Dougherty and Lister, 2008). This surgery is life changing and highly distressing for patients. Nurses must meet the psychological, educational and physical needs of patients undergoing this surgery in order to help them cope with such a life-changing event and help improve their quality …show more content…
Patients also worry about their sexual relationship. Patients fear they will be rejected by their sexual partner (Turnbull, 2001). It is the role of nurses to refer these patients onto sexual counselling. Sexual counselling is very beneficial to patients according to the NHS (2016) because it provides a safe and regular space for patients to talk about and explore their feelings. Unfortunately, the benefits of sexual counselling are not felt as much as they should be. This is because the mean age of patients who have undergone a full cystectomy and ileal conduit urinary diversion is 68. For this reason, sexual counselling is often overlooked (Turnbull, 2001). Nurses should never overlook sexual counselling as it promotes patient’s acceptance of their stoma. This, in turn, helps patients cope better psychologically. Despite the NHS reporting the benefits of sexual counselling, a study conducted by Persson and Hellstrom (2002) found sexual counselling to be of no benefit to patients. The small sample size that took part in this study felt sexual counselling did not make them feel any more sexually attractive. More studies with bigger sample sizes have to be conducted in order to get a better representation of patient’s sexual relationships post-operatively (Hackshaw,

During my clinical preceptorship at New York Presbyterian Hospital, many patients that came into the hospital with urinary retention a catheter was inserted to determine the amount of urine in their bladder or post-void residual (PVR). Many patients later developed pain and a urinary tract infection or Community Acquired Infection secondary to frequent cauterization. Therefore, the gap identified was related to a knowledge deficit of the current practice that inserting a
The condom catheter is places on the penis and held in place by a special adhesive material, on the end of the condom there is a draining tube that leads to the bag. This kind of catheter should be changed every 24-48 ours. When working with patients with a condom catheter we need to be careful not to dislodge the catheter or the draining tube. We also need to cautious that the catheter does not rub the patient and cause skin irritation or
On assessment of his abdomen I noticed his lower pubic area was bulging outward, which looked very abnormal. I started to insert the Indwelling catheter and noticed that when it was fully inserted there was no urine return, but I was
The 3 main types of ileostomy surgery are: o Loop ileostomy. A partial incision will be made in the ileum so that there is an opening in the ileum. This opening will be stitched to the skin around your abdomen incision to make the stoma. This type of procedure is often temporary. o End ileostomy.
In obstructive Chronic Pyelonephritis, the kidney walls become thin and the scarring can be seen from the cortex to the medulla Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is the failure of the vesicoureteral orifice that can be the result of bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) increasing pressure on the bladder distorting the valve. This means that urine is able to move back into the kidney because of the failure of the vesicoureteral orifice valve. In a healthy kidney, the flow of urine descends from the kidney to the ureter into the bladder. The valve closes after urine flows into the bladder.
I write on behalf of my patient, Phil Robins, who is a sixty-five-year-old male facing acute urinary retention. Phil Robins shows several medical symptoms, including an inability to urinate, severe pain and discomfort in the lower abdomen, and bloating of the lower abdomen. My patient has been previously diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia which has been obstructing his urinary tract. Because of this, he frequently has to use a catheter to empty his bladder. My main concern for Mr. Robins is the prevention of infections commonly associated with catheter use.
INTRODUCTION Anxiety prior to surgery is common, indeed up to 80% of patients will experience it (1, 9). With anxiety disorders affecting approximately 15% of the UK population (2, 3, 9), preoperative situational anxiety may significantly exacerbate an existing anxiety disorder. While anxiety can be expected in the preoperative period, research demonstrates has been shown to have that it has negatives effects in the postoperative period, from increased postoperative pain to decreased wound healing, and long-term psychological distress (4-9). This raises the question of whether doctors are ethically obligated to tell their patients the truth and just how much information should a doctor disclose to their patient? Are there any situations when disclosure is ethically objectionable?
Description: The incidents occurred while carrying out certain intervention on my assigned client in the unit with my clinical instructor. It involves the removal of a foley catheter and an IV.tubing on my patient which was due according to the protocol of the hospital. Although my primary nurses wanted to carry out the procedure with me assisting her,my instructor suggest that I do it while she supervises me since it was my first time. I was quite excited to learn and acquire this new squill that I forgot to prepare adequately for it. Critical reflection:
It is important for them to put their thoughts aside and place themselves in their client’s feelings and remain empathic. Any individual who are struggling to cope, are all authorized to contact counselling services. As counsellors they have to uphold equal opportunities as they are there to help clients think differently. The importance of confidentiality within counselling is extremely valuable as every individual has the right to say how their information can be accessed. Before starting a counselling session, counsellors agree not to disclose any information with anyone.
Over the past one and half month, the class of PDE 502 (Counselling and Career Education) has taught me some major lessons for life in dealing with the clients in response to their emotional needs. The role of a counsellor is not unlike that of a friend where by it is nurtured by being in each other’s company, talking over everyday issues and sharing feelings. However, what sets a counsellor apart is their experience and the ability to apply counselling theories and techniques to assist people in gaining awareness, insight and explore ways of solving their own issues.
