I'm facing a radical cystectomy soon. I've read some interesting articles regarding laparoscopic cystectomy and it sounds so much better than open surgery. However, my doctor says it is in the early stages and hasn't been prefected yet. I've found a few places that do this procedure. Do any of you women have any information or experience with this procedure? I think it's fairly common in men, with no complications.
