I was diagnosed with bladder cancer in May 2014, had 3 TURBTs, BCG & EMDA for 9 weeks, a total of 6 cystoscopies and biopsies under General anaesthetic. The cancer has reduced and remains either Gd2TpA and /or tissue CIS but I must soon decide whether to have radical Cystonomy - removal of bladder, Uterus, etc .
I am warned by some hands on clinicians that infection is the biggest problem with any such major surgery and to at least have thorough discussion first with an oncologist about chemo or radiotherapy. Guys hospital in London where I am being treated said they would refer me to oncology if I wanted.\
Has anyone in the group pursued this avenue? If so, what was the advice, did you have either therapy, and what was the outcome?
