Hi Cynthia,
Thank you for your reply. We live is California, near Sacramento. The urologist claims to have done many cystectomy surgeries but it's worth checking into. Thanks again

I am sorry you need to be here but welcome. This sis something you need to talk to your doctor about make a list of your questions and take them with you. I don't know where you are seeking treatment but make sure they do a high volume of the diversion your husband is having done. You also might consider a second opinion at a major center to cover your bases if you let the group know the state you live in I am sure you will get suggestions.
We had a user in her sixties years back who had polio as a child and had the very same diagnosis your husband has she did very well and has gone one to do very well.
I hope this helps a bit we are here if you need us.

Hi, I'm new to the forum. My husband was recently diagnosed with PT2 muscle invasive high-grade transitional cell carcinoma with carcinomas in situ. The doctors recommend chemo and radical cystectomy(removing the bladder). He is 73 years old and has some underlying health issues(polio as a child). He's fearful the treatment and surgery will further weaken his health condition. I'm very interested in hearing your experiences and advice.
