In Part 2 of Episode 9 of Bladder Cancer Matters, host Rick Bangs talks with Jill Hamilton-Reeves, PhD, RD, CSO. Dr. Reeves is a registered and licensed dietitian with doctoral training in translational and clinical nutrition science. Dr. Reeves’s research is focused on nutrition and cancer prevention, management, and survivorship, with specific attention on genitourinary cancers.

Rick and Dr. Reeves discuss:

  • How good nutrition may help patients receiving immunotherapy, either by increasing the effectiveness of their immunotherapy or making the side effects more tolerable
  • How fitness and nutrition before a radical cystectomy play into the results from the surgery including any complications
  • How you can lose muscle – not fat – in the days after bladder cancer surgery
