adenocarcinoma stage 1A--no chemo just surgery
lung cancer will spread very early on

this is not lung cancer but bladder cancer from biopsy samples

I am not sure how chemo does with bc? form what I read not so good.

sorry to hear that news Eileen. Since you dodged the bullet l0 yrs ago..what type lung cancer was it? Is it a return of the original or is this an extension of the bladder cancer to the lungs? Will you be consulting with a thoracic surgeon just in case? I just want you to be on the right chemo.

Hi all

I will not be having surgery as my bladder cancer has spread outside the bladder :( . I also have nodules in my lungs. So it is on to chemo for me.

I dodged a bullet ten years ago with lung cancer so I guess it was borrowed time.

Thank you all for your support

Yes my doc did a quick pelvic the other day and when he pressed on my bladder it really hurt--so something is still going on. Either tumor is left in there or just sore from TURBT.

Getting MRI and Cat scan of chest (because I had Lung Cancer 10 years ago)on Saturday --then we will go from there.

One step at a time for me--

Thanks everyone for their support

That's why the ct scan isn't enough. There really needs to be cystoscopy to get a good look.
