How soon will I be discharged after a cystectomy?

Before the intervention takes place, we can only anticipate the approximate length of your hospital stay.

Following cystectomy, we will be able to provide you with a more accurate estimate based on your postoperative symptoms.

Most patients are discharged after 3 days – a week.

Those who are discharged earlier prove that they are able to safely recover at home. Once we make sure that you are capable of starting your home recovery without developing complications, we will discharge you.
