I get all of my results of tests and options May 9th so not long to wait. I can't have chemo because of my right kidney not functioning properly. I will be offered the bladder removal if I am fit enough and of course my choice.i have a good head on my shoulders but owing to the age I am will it be too much .my surgeon said he did the bladder removal on a 90 year old who survived it well.I started continuing weeing last September and it is so degrading to me as it prevents me going out to places as one continuous stream and has cost a fortune on tena lady but I now get free pads but still have to buy more.I am glad I found this site because instead of crying all the time I can write how I feel to people who understand
