    Radiation (Internal radiation): i just started this so i am not sure what side effects, i might have broken ribs as the treatment is being done close to the ribs. since this is a very rare type of cancer, they do not know if this will have any effect on the cells. this radation is being done on the right lung with 3 spots. only 2 spots are being treated.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery to remove lung cancer that has spread): the cancer spread to the both lungs. i had 2 areas in the left lung cut out. one spot on the left lung is left because it is close to alot of arteries and to close to the heart.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): the cancer started in my bladder, thru the utherer(?), and to cut the utherer away and there were other things done around the bladder at this time. i had 32 lymph nodes removed which caused me to get lymphedema in my legs. this was an 8 hour surgergy. i had 2 other surgergies in the same area as the cancer came back twice around the same spot.

    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): not anything to be afraid of, no problems installing the port.
