I am 52 year old female and had a neo bladder in Feb 2004due to bladder cancer also had my pelvic lymph nodes also removed however they were clear from cancer.

I needed two bladder slings because my sphitcter muscle (sp) did not work properly for the neo bladder so I had two bladder slings and now self cather. I was just wondering those that have a neo bladder how long have you had it, did the cancer show up elsewhere and did you run into any complications as the years go by.

Thanks I guess now that I have passed the year mark and feeling good and cancer free I was wondering if this is too good to last.

    I think you will find many individuals on this discussion board who have had a neobladder. You may want to contact them directly through the CSN internal email system by clicking on the envelope icon below their messages and ask them about their experiences.

    You can also search the personal web pages by clicking on the link on the left hand side of this page. You can then put in the key word neobladder and then browse the web pages you find and see if there is someone you would like to contact that way.

    I hope this information has been helpful.

    Take care and be well,
