Nephrostomy

Thank you very much! I know they say a little leakage is normal but It's annoying. I'll look into it.

If it is near the incision it could be the connector or something as simple as needing to irrigate more often. Having said that the answer is you need to call your medical team and ask them to have a look at it. I had to do that a few times myself and it was always a simple answer. Now aren’t you glad you asked as I was no help at all? Hopefully we can be more help with your next question.

Near the incision site but below it, where the tube has a small series of connections. It seems worse with the leg bag and not so much with the overnight catheter.

Hi all,
Was diagnosed with stage 2 muscle invasive BC in July. I start chemo this week.
I have a nephrostomy tube which isn't too bad but leaks a little here and there.
Any suggestions?
Thanks and it's good to be here.
