A radical cystectomy is a surgery to remove the bladder.
Complications occur in 25%-35% of patients undergoing cystectomy. If you are planning to have a cystectomy, your doctor will review a list of possible complications, which may include:
- Loss of sexual function
- Fluid build-up in the abdominal cavity
- Damage to other organs
- Blockage of urine flow from the ureters to the bladder
- Nutritional problems (depending on the bowel segments used to create a way for urine to drain)
- Blood clots
- Reaction to anesthesia
- Urinary incontinence
