My story of Bladder Cancer

I saw my long-time gynecologist today. (I noticed that he has lost his Doogie Howser look this year.)  Anyway, he is the one who referred me to the Urologist because of blood in my urine.  I thanked him for it.

As he was scheduling me for a pelvic ultrasound because of the pelvic pain/constipation/urine blockage that I am experiencing, he looked at me in what seemed to be a sincere way, and said,

"I don’t trust you anymore since you got the bladder cancer".

I’m not real sure what he meant, but I think he meant that he will be breathing down my neck to keep up with yearly cancer screenings.    

The truth is, I’m not sure if I trust myself anymore… 😕
