A press release from the surgeon has said that the cancer in the 45-year-old woman from Kerala was found to have infiltrated the urinary bladder. After initial consultation did not offer her much hope, she was referred to the city hospital.
When Dr. Venkatachalam found that the cancer had not gone beyond the urinary bladder, he decided to perform iliostomy, a procedure to create an artificial bladder by using two uterers that originated from the kidneys. The urine would be stored in this bladder and let out into a special bag called iliostomy bag. The bladder had to be created because the uterus, cervix, vagina, urinary bladder and urethra were surgically removed.
