Hi--I've never posted before, but have been encouraged by many of your posts. In Jan., I had a kidney removed because of a tumor that turned out to be a urothelial carcinoma (more typically a bladder cancer). The doctors felt chemo would be too hard on my remaining kidney. At my quarterly check-up, I had new tumors developing in my bladder and on my prostate. I had one BCG treatment, but my surgeon felt that my best chances for a cure would be surgically. On Aug. 2, I am having surgery to remove my bladder, prostate and a few other "bits". After that, I will have a urostomy. I feel this is the right course for me and am feeling very positive about it. Again, thanks for all of your posts. It is nice to know others have gone through all of this and are doing well!
