What a wonderful web site—so happy I found it. I was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma–invasive–of the muscularis wall. I am 82 years old. I have lost 20 pounds within the past year. I was diagnosed with Chirossis of the Liver in 2002 –never drank or smoked and diagnosed with Chronic Renal Failure. I am doing find in those areas. But now have come down with this. My daughter has taken me from doctor to doctor. I have such a pressure and pain that It is almost imbarable. Doc told me no infection –culture did not grow–another doc told me ys bladder infec–culture did grow–all of this after a TURBT–systoscopy where they remove a tumor from my bladder. After that they did an MRI–did not show any other areas –not spread…..anatheseologist said he would not allow surgery, yet when I went in for the TURBT I had caught a cold. Even tho I am weak I still want to live. My insurance will not allow me to go out of the plan so I cannot seea specialist that is at the Mayo Clinic. My daughter is finally going to pay for this so I can maybe live. Does anyone know anything that mighth help me?????
