There has been a lot of discussion recenty on this question on the Forum. Here is a link
to some of it

Also, the Cleveland Clinic website has a very good discussion of all the types of diversions available:

An important thing to remember is that the experience of the urologist doing the surgery is critical to its success. The surgeon needs to be an EXPERT in this field who does many many of these annually.

My husband is 56 a had an attempted TURBT on the 25th. Dr. told us they couldn't remove anything as too many clauiflower tumors were present. Also stated the prostate and urethra were effected. Will be scheduling surgery to remove bladder, prostrate and urethra. He is looking at a urostomy or Indiana pouch. Anyone have any comments on either as we try to make this decision and keep our composure doing so. Pros and Cons for either would be appreciated. Don't know about chemotherapy til after surgery. Having ctscan and colonoscopy next week as well.
