Subject:Radical Cystectomy Options

I am scheduled for a radical cystectomy in early November and have to make a decision regarding the type urinary diversion to have (Oct. 28).  I would like to talk to individuals with ileal diversion and neo bladder experience so that I may make a good decision.

Would you choose the same option?  What problems have you experienced?  Has your choice impacted your ability to remain active?  Have you had to catheterize yourself after the neo bladder option?

Your responses are most appreciated.

Hello jvincentii,

Thank you for reaching out to find information about urinary diversion options--there's lots to think about in the process.  It's always a good idea to discuss your options with your doctor.  In addition, feel free to contact Anderson Network, who matches cancer patients with survivors of similar cancer for conversation and support:

713-792-2553 or 1-800-345-6324, or e-mail at andersonnetwork@mdanderson.org

Take care and keep in touch,

Laura Walther-Broussard, LCSW, OSW-C
