My name is Tony and I live in Chicago. I am 56, good health and physically active, non smoker or drinker.
My symptoms are similar to others I have read in the blogs ... blood in urine, no associated pain or discomfort, CT Scan indicating a mass, and a look see with biopsy and removal of the tumor.
Found out last Tuesday (November 2, 2010) that the tumor was a larger T1 highly aggressive variety. In 5 weeks will have another look see with biopsy/removal of any visible regrowth or biopsy of area. Immunotherapy for 6 weeks to begin shortly thereafter. Another 6 weeks off followed by another look see. More to come.
Attempting to say in the moment. Keeping busy and with a (usually) good attitude. However, I have my moments!
Thanks for reading and share if you like.
