    My husband has been cancer free for five years after having a cystechtomy. We are thankful for that. However infection and complications from surgery have been a struggle. He had infection that ate away his stomach muscles. Reconstructive surgery twice. Fistula which led to ileostomy. He doesn't do well with anesthesia or antibiotics. They cause hallucinations and confusion. Living with a urostomy is a breeze compared to these other things.

    My husband had his bladder removed two years ago. Surgery went well, and he remains cancer free. No cancer found in 23 lymph nodes or prostrate. He didn't need chemo or radiation. Living with a urostomy isn't a big deal. We have adjusted and it's just part if our life now.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): When we heard the word cancer, I was terrified. I spent two days crying. My husband however, stepped out on faith to do whatever it would take for him to get well.
