I am sure that someone will pop up to answer some of his questions. But there is a LOT of information on this Forum for him to read in the meantime. At the top of each forum page is "Search Forum." Just click on that and enter "radical cystectomy."
This is an OPTION? What are the others?

Looking for anyone in or near the age of 82 that will chat with my father-in-law about their experience with a radical cystectomy. He has been diagnosed with bladder cancer and has an appointment in the next two weeks at Mayo and needs to decide whether he is going to have the procedure, which they have laid out as an option, or not. He has a lot of questions about experiences and outcomes after the procedure and has not been able to find anyone to talk to besides doctors. He is visiting us this week and desperately wants to find an active person in or around his age who has had the operation whom he can ask questions. Thanks!
