Need To Ask

10 years 7 months ago #16473 by tahoemom
Thanks Lauren,
Been much better yesterday afternoon and doing well today.
I'm not dwelling on it like I did at first. Got it down to around once a week or so. Next week at this time the procedure will be all over, and then I will wait for the pathology report.

But right now I have too much to do to give it much thought, Some of the grandkids are graduating. Some are going on vacation or have birthdays. With 12 of them , there is something going on always to keep me occupied :)

Thanks for your support ...I also have type 2 diabetes. Diet controlled for now :)

You'll have a normal life if you choose to. You may obsess on some days, but if you choose to look at it as just another pothole on the road through life, then your days will be as happy as you make them. For me, the changes were positive - I read all my food labels, eat healthier, and read ALOT about other things I can do to stay healthier. I'm only 49, I plan on living alot longer, with or without my bladder! I just had back surgery from a stupid fall this winter, and it was much more bothersome than the cancer (that actually returned after an initial 2 yr absence)... now I'm trying to get my T2 diabetes back under control (some of those painkillers and the pain response it self got it all out of whack) - and in August, we'll see if the Big C came back again.

I mentioned before, my urologist said if he had to get any kind of cancer, it would be superficial non-invasive TaG1 bladder cancer...

I wish you the best of luck with your second TURB - deep breaths!!

Be strong, remain fearless!

I been thinking really positive for many days. Today I just got all morose . I think yes Pat, I got consumed today by the "c" word today. I feel better now.
Sure will be glad when the waiting is over. Got to be the hardest part of all!

Thanks all :)

Well i'm certainly not planning on dying from it......I've a better chance of a truck hitting me first!...one actually tried today...so now you are just consumed with the "C" word......best advise anyone can give you is to seek out the best surgeon and best facility for treatment. Pat
