One of the follow-up solutions to a cystectomy is the creation of a neobladder (one form of which is named Studer's Ileal Neobladder or the Studer Pouch). A neobladder is a loop of intestine that is surgically fashioned into a pouch and placed in the location of the original bladder. It is then attached to the ureters and the urethra , thus simulating the function of the original organ. The kidneys filter the urine into the neobladder which can often be emptied by muscle control. There are side effects of this complex surgery, including partial shut down of the digestive system (in response to removal of the piece of intestine), incontinence , and the loss of the nerves that signal a full bladder.
DSA ’s swims take place just two and a half hours north of Sydney in the open ocean outside the spectacular heads of Port Stephens, using the beautiful Imagine Cruises catamaran as the platform. Guests are fitted with wetsuit, mask, snorkel and marine vest, and attached safely to a rope strung between the bows of the catamaran. They are then immersed in the breathtaking world of bow-surfing dolphins and pulled gently through the water so that they feel like part of the pod! The curious dolphins swim back and forth between the bows, whistling and clicking, clearly fascinated with watching the humans watching them!
In a July 2012 interview published by the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper, Chen Zhangho, the lead doctor for the Chinese Olympic team at the Los Angeles , Seoul and Barcelona Olympics told of how he had tested hormones, blood doping and steroids on about fifty elite athletes.  Chen also accused the United States, the Soviet Union and France of using performance-enhancing drugs at the same time as China.  Chen also blamed foreign experts for "lying" to the Chinese about the effectiveness of doping, saying he and others "blindly believed them like fools".  The Chinese officials eventually concluded that training was the key to performance and that taking drugs did not guarantee this.
