December 2011 Update

Posted by: Jeff in Untagged  on

Had a further cystoscopy in September 2011 without hitch and did not reveal any recurrence ;D Due for further check in 1 year. Last December was my 3rd occurence of bladder cancer within 4 and the future is a worry, especially considering I have had bowel cancer previously and have an inherited gene that predisposes me to the

Thanks Tony. Back at home and recovering slowly although a bit sore and tired. Op went well and just waiting for Uro to phone with pathology results. TCC was confined to ureter with no muscle invasion he told me in hospital. Need to go back in for removal of the stent in about 6 weeks.

 

Cheers

24/11 Update

Posted by: Jeff in Untagged  on

Saw mu Uro today and we discussed the need for him to remove my kidney. The tumor is at the bottom end of the ureter and he has decised we can do the ureter resection, bladder cuff and reimplantation without taking the kidney. The catalyst for this is that I am borderline diabetic and he wants to keep the kidney in case this develops further. So surgery to go ahead on 8 December and I will update again

Well test and Uro confirms a TCC in the left ureter. Uro has recommended removal of ureter and left kidney to prevent further travel to this organ. As I was groggy when diagnosis was related to me I have arranged to see Uro in his rooms on 24 November. Operation is booked for 8 December. Plan to ask Uro further questions including why he wants to take perfectly healthy kidney and what are risks if I keep

All's been well this year with no further symptoms and next P & P due in March 2009. Just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy healthy New Year.

Just dropped in for an update. Had another cystoscopy performed in February and all is well with no signs of recurrence. Next check 12 months. I trust everyone is making progress with their disease and is on the improve.

Married my daughter off on Friday and what a proud father I am.

On the downside my 80yo father in law has just been diagnosed with lung cancer with multiple secondaries and the prognosis is

Well another poke and peek and even I could see it looked great in there. Not a sign of any problems and the bladder was the best it had looked since this all started. This was tremendous news given I am recovering from a spinal fusion from 7 weeks ago. Next P & P in 9 months.....yippeeeee!!!

My what challenges life throws at us from time to time. Whilst I received a short interlude in my treatment for BC with another cystocope due in June another ailment befell me. As a result I recently underwent a spinal fusion and am now filled with all sorts of hardware to hold me together....lol. Whilst this was and still is a painful exercise at least it took my mind off the BC and my in remission colon CA for a while. Gotta stay focused and cheery, although that is hard coming into winter in Western Australia. On the bright side I am now retired and as soon as I can I will be tackling that
