Newly Diagnosed

9 years 9 months ago #36242 by tariq
My brother (58 years of age) was diagnosed with bladder cancer yesterday. He is an engineer working in Abudhabi. Doctor says they are going to remove his bladder and put a new one. My questions are:

Length of the surgery?
Recovery?
Is he at risk in terms of cancer spreading some where else?

Notes:

Hypertensive (just diagnosed in 2010)

First surgery was done in Nov 2010 to remove a large stone from his
Urinary bladder

From his last CT scan of this section shows no other area is affected
