Diagnosed with Bladder Cancer

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?????
