Options Following Removal of Bladder

My husband (age 61) may need to have his bladder removed to halt post-radiation hemorraghing. Because he had his prostate removed he is not a likely candidate forthe most recent neo-bladder procedure.

We're eager to hear the pros and cons of other options and advice for coping with the surgery and the recovery period.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience.

Janet

Re: Options Following Removal of Bladder

My husband had his bladder removed in 98 and we did well with it he had no problems after the surgery, it took a little bit working with the urostomy, just at first it was a little gross looking at but we both adjusted well and he had a good since of humor. He had his removed due to cancer so we were just glad that they could remove it and he did great with it, I helped him with it the first year, then he did it on his own

Thanks so much for your reply. My husband is adjusting, as yours did. The encouragement really helps.

Diet is key. Make sure he doesn't jump straight back in to any bad eating habit right off the bat at least...
