No.: A bladder transplant is not an option after bladder resection. Depending on your situation, they may be able to reconstruct your bladder. You should discuss long and short term options with your urologist.

Thanks for asking!: Making a new bladder in the lab is under development, but for now there are several options for reconstructing a bladder from your own body. And these can be discussed with your urologist.
