@gordy6898p, I've added your question to the Ostomy support group as well.

Here's some information about bladder removal and urostomy:
– Bladder removal surgery (cystectomy) https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/cystectomy/about/pac-20385108
– About Your Bladder Surgery With an Ileal Conduit (Urostomy) https://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/patient-education/about-your-bladder-surgery-ileal-conduit-urostomy

I'm tagging fellow members like @ggarrepy @chuckking @katydid77 @tapestry4245carton @jshollett who can share their experiences with you.

How are you doing with chemo? How many treatments will you have before surgery is scheduled?

Hi.........

My second Chemo infusion was given Oct 24, the third is schedule for Nov 15

At that time I'll be evaluated to decide how to proceed.

I'll eventually have both bladder and prostate surgery, with an abdominal stoma.

So far, things are going well. A few minor annoyances of no real concern.

Thanks, and take care.
