    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I have heard so many horror stories about chemotherapy, but I think what will be will be and it's only going to last about three months. I had absolutely no side effects, everything they told me that could happen everything was quite the opposite, loss of energy my energy level increased, loss of appetite, my wife had to hide the food. Here again it was my sense of humor and attitude that carried me through!!

    Easy to Do: Not Specified
    Minimal Side Effects: Not Specified

    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    The surgical team worked on me for nine hours, removed my bladder, prostate, lymph nodes. Ran lines from my kidneys to an ostomy. With a larger pouch I have been thinking about being a long haul truck driver, I would only have to stop for fuel.

    Went as Expected: Not Specified
