I'm with Mike. We are here for you. Hoping that you have clear margins and won't need us anymore. Nothing will make us happier that not needing us.

sincerely

It is a stressful time so we are here to help in a variety of ways. It might be a question for you to ask your doc, it might be a web site referral for background, or just a bit of advice on something that worked for us. We will be watching for your pathology reports as well as other info from you and will be here for support for you both.

Margellen, Sorry to hear about your cancer. You have came to the right place for the advice and support you need. I hope you will be comforted by what you read on this forum. Most all of us here have been on the journey you are beginning. The more you can learn from this site the better off you will be. Most all of us have felt as you did on initially hearing of our cancer, it will pass. Try to take it one day at a time. As George said, believe it
or not, there will also be some good come from all of this.

Sorry to welcome you to this site. We are here for you. Just a few things to help stop the shakes..... You are NOT going to die anytime soon. Probably NOT from bladder cancer. You ARE going to get through this. Your life WILL change. Sometimes even for the better.

As ALL of the great people here have already said; This is a journery and you have already started to look out for yourself. You have found the BEST Dr. and hospital for b.c. You have taken charge of your own life and THAT is a HUGE step. You have to be an advocate for yourself.

We are here for you and we are a great group to bounce ideas off of. Please feel free to ask questions, rant, cry, and look for a shoulder to lean on. If you have a caregiver that has questions, they can come here too. Basically, we are your one stop bc center. :laugh: :laugh:

We also have a Very Weird sense of humor about this. NOTHING is sacred and NO question is out of bounds.

Sincerely and with care

George
