I was diagnosed with stage II bladder cancer and going through chemo right now. Then, they will be taking my bladder. I have to decide which surgery I want. Being 53, I will be living with this for a long time, God willing. I am so glad i found this group. i welcome anyone's thoughts or knowledge on the pros and cons of neo bladder vs stoma. This will be hardest part for me, as i am very active like to swim, long rides on motorcycle. Can I expect the bag to leak and always have to have a change of clothes? How does the neo bladder affect your bowels which I also deal with constipation a lot of the time? Thank you to all! I know I will find great support in this group with others dealing with the same issues.
