    I was diagnosed at the same age. Had tumor removed and went through three months of chemo. Do you have questions concerning chemo, surgery? Be happy to answer any questions about my experience.

    I was diagnosed with invasive bladder CA in 2012. Had chemo, maintenance treatments, etc. I go next month for a cysto and will have a PET scan. I try to focus on how blessed I am to still be here and the good things in life. I will have to be monitored for years, so try to take my doctor's advice, "Go home and enjoy your life!" Not always easy. Wishing you good results on your biopsy!

      Everything was good with the biopsy.No cancer. I had cervical cancer late 2010, lots of internal & external radiation and chemo. What I'm going thru now is just long term side effects from the radiation. I can handle that. I'm going to just relax. Every day is a blessing. Rain or shine.

    Right there with you! I will finish my second round of BCG tomorrow, then will have another round the end of May, early June. Had a PET scan last month and it was negative. Yeah! I had a stent placed in January because I was having kidney pain, which is actually worse now! So will have that removed when I have my next biopsy in about a month. Need to figure out why I have the pain though. How did you do with your second round of BCG? My doctor told me to take Aleve in the morning and in the evening when I have the BCG and that seems to help some. Hope you are doing better. It is difficult to deal with several health issues at once, can be over whelming at times, but hang in there! You can do this! Sending good thoughts your way.

      I found if I take flu relief ( over the counter ) it helps with side effects. I did well but do have some leakage so use guards. Have been a bed wetter most of my life.
      Thanks for the shout. My scan was good but need lung CAT scan for spot on my lung. Getting old is defiantly not for sissies
