Praise GOD the lung cancer remains stable since my treatment ended in August 2016, at present there is no active cancer in my body. I will have the cathater for the rest of my life, for the most part it works OK, but I do have pain when sitting every day but it eases when i stand or walk, no problems sleeping, i have been told the bladder pain is as a result of the Radiotherapy treatment. I am also prone to UTIs because of the cathater. I am not allowed to bend as it can cause bladder bleeds. The good news is I can still get about and do light duties and I can drive for small journeys, so I have more blessings to be thankful for. I am having regular 12 week scans and appointment with the Oncologist as I am not out of the woods yet. I am so grateful to the medical and nursing staff at the Belfast Cancer Center for their excellent care. I signed up with Queens University bladder cancer research team, every time I valve a TURBT and ditsy are sent off for biopsy the research team get the left overs. May all who suffer cancer be blessed with a positive Spirit and hope for the future. God bless you all.
