My name is Abbby and I am 73 yrs old. I have been diagnosed with bladder cancer and ; after treatment,surgeries,and 3 months of Chemo ; my last CT scan showed no cancer. Even though Im clean, my doctors are now majorly recommending precautionary removal of my bladder , instead of further Chemo and radiation , because of the fact that my intestines are in the way of the full radiation needed for proper doseage. I now have major apprehensions about the surgery and would like to hear from someone out there whom has gone through this situation and can give me some advise/help/etc. My E-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Today is 17 jan 2010. Thank you.
