Brief Answer:
Drink plenty of water

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. There are a few things that I need to ask. Firstly I need to know if the brown discharge is with urine or whether it is from your vagina. The next things to ask are its consistency, how long it has been occurring, whether it is associated with other complaints like burning sensation during passage of urine. I would also need to ask the reasons for opting for urostomy. Based on those information I would be able to guide you further.

Urinary tract infections are often encountered in females of your age, especially with urostomy. In case of such an infection you need to drink plenty of water. Treatment with appropirate antibiotics which may include ciprofloxacin and sulfam should provide relief.

Let me know if there is something specific you would like me to help you with. I will wait for your response.
