Decision Point Associated with Flat, Transitional Cell (Urothelial) Carcinoma. Posted on September 9, 2012 View this journey (3 Experiences)

This week I will get results of the pathology report from the second procedure and consult with my urological oncology team about the treatment course. I am fully expecting them to recommend a cystectomy, the question remaining in my mind is whether it will be a simple or a radical course. I really don't want to lose all of my reproductive organs, this surgery is going to be hard enough to recover from without that. Don't know if the doctors will recommend neobladder, ileal conduit or containment. I am a breast cancer survivor, six years out from surgery. This process is much harder.
