I was stage 3, 2 years ago. Did 4 rounds of chemo before the surgery and went Neo. All went well and I thought I made the right choose, but I still have little to no control. I have talked to guys that were fine and back to normal after a few months. I was 62 and in good shape. There is a lot of info at American Bladder Cancer Society site. Check it out, and yes I would go the same way again.
I am 73 and have stage 2T bladder cancer. I’m in good shape and going with neo bladder. Any suggestions for getting ready for chemo and surgery? How WAS chemo? How do you control nighttime/sleeping leakage? Is the surgery recover tough??? Any suggestions and comments would be appreciated. Flash
Had neo bladder cancer, 2018 , stage 2 but was aggressive. Did the chemo before surgery etc,
Plan on using mens guards at night, no matter what you do you will have leakage. Buy bed pads to keep under you just in case. Not good to wet the bed at 3 in the morning.. Sometimes you may want to keep some disposable underwear on hand if you have a bad night, I have put the guards/shields in them. Lots of kiegel exercises are needed, will help for daytime problems.. my only problem was a sticture, blocked ureter in the right kidney. Had to go back in last year in January to have the bad section cut and reattached. 2019
otherwise neo is the way to go !!
