Keeping the Faith!

Had another clean Cysto today :).  Has been over a year without a trace of the cancer.  Will start a final maintenance session (3 treatments) of BCG in the next three weeks.  If interested in details on my story, see my first post on November 9, 2010.  Keep the faith!

December 2011 Update

At a crossroad

Bladder Cancer and signs of the end of life

Hi:  I am caring for a significant other who has stage 4 bladder cancer with mets to the bone.  I was wondering what I might expect when it comes to the end for him.  Will he have gross blood in his urine?  Anyone have any experience with this?  Thanks.  Terry

Good bye

My husband lost his battle with bladder cancer on 8-24-2011, I miss him so much but know that he is not in pain and is not suffering. God will take of you in heaven Rick
