Hello Swag... I'm sorry about your diagnosis that brought you here but welcome to this site. As a female fairly new here myself, I can't speak to what you can expect after your surgery, but just wanted to say hello. As you have already found out, there is a wealth of info here. Best of luck with your surgery. There are some real success stories here and I hope you find them encouraging as you start on this journey. Some of these amazing people will be addressing your questions soon.

Diagnosed with muscle invasive bladder cancer last week. Surgery to remove bladder and prostate scheduled for this week . All things going well i will have a neo bladder. I am 48yr male and reasonably fit . I am a firefighter in Australia and came across this website by luck. It is fantastic to read other peoples experience . I would like to know when exercise can be resumed post operation and hear some personal accounts regarding this matter if possible . Is it at all likely i could resume active work following surgery? (all things going well)Has anyone returned to physical employment and what can be expected? Thanks in advance
