Working/Manual Labor after Neobladder

Hello,

My Dad is about to undergo surgery to remove his bladder, he is gathering information on which procedure to have done, either the neobladder or the illeostomy urinary tube w/ collection bag, his biggest concern is whether he will be able to continue working after surgery, he is a Stone Mason and with this line of work he can be lifting up to 200-330 lbs of rock, is there anyone who has had either procedure done and was able to continue working in a strenuous field.

Thank you Talie

I had a cystectomy close to four years ago. I chose a neobladder as I qualified to have it done. I lift weights and can handle as much today as I did before my surgery. I have no reservations about my selection
