I am glad to hear the cafe was a comfort for you. I found this wonderful place after my release from the hospital. Made great reading while healing. Don't ever hesitate to post a question or comment on your progress. Plenty of people to help out here!

Welcome home Kathy and thank you for your message, it's very touching that the forum was helpful to you, I"m glad.
I wish you an uneventful and painless recovery - but major surgery being what it is (no walk in the park) you'll need time, rest and as much pampering of yourself as you can get. There are quite a few women with neobladders these days, a huge increase in the last few years, and it seems to be panning out to become a new standard for those motivated enough to pursue it as an option. It's certainly not the simplest but well worth the extra effort involved once hurdles are overcome.
Good luck with everything and I hope it's smoothe sailing for you.
Cancer is a Challenge and it sounds like you are dealing with it really well - OK so we ALL suffer from those dark hours in the middle of the night and the post-it notes wityh black borders that drift through your head uncontrollably - you WILL learn to laugh at them but never think you are alone.
You are not the only one who no longer has headaches they have POTENTIAL BRAIN TUMOURS that too you learn to deal with.
You are a lively vibrant person with everything you already had to offer who now has the added experience of Cancer, which you have dealt with - never let the cancer dominate your life and never ever miss a checkup or ignore a symptom.
well done so far - I am sure you will now be able to help so many others who are following you on that same scarey road
