Getting your own bladder.

A collegue of mine has an extremely happy 2-year old son.

Not anything special to write about you would say, except that this child was born with some hip problems that created more problems, including having several operations when still a baby.

To correct these hip problems his legs were operated to point right-angles outward (like this : _|_ ) and this for several months. As a result of these operations, his bladder was damaged/reconstructed, so he can no longer use the normal way to pee.

So I’m very happy for my very brave collegue and her very brave and happy child that this might be a option for him. I hope with all my heart (because I’m a big softy when it comes to kids and their ailments) that it will help him to lead an (even more) normal life !
Life sometimes gets this rosy glow…
