    I wanted to ask, if you have ostomies or a mitrofanoff, does this increase the risk of a C-Section? I can't find any info on that.

    My urologist told me that if I agreed to a bladder augmentation or urostomy, I would have to have any child via C-Section, due to all the hardware and stuff, and the risk of the augmented part tearing from the bladder. Has anyone ever heard of this before? I always thought having a kid naturally was the best option, especially if you've had several abdominal surgeries.
    I'll say it again, I don't have any kids yet, but have wondered this ever since my last abdominal surgery in January '09, because I keep hearing different opinions on the topic.
