Jason, enjoy the cool weather, here in Missouri it has been in the 100s with 80% humidity. It's almost unbearable. I have been dealing with my cancer for 6 years now. My doctor and I are very aggressive with it. I have had the BCG and still have had recurrences, so hang in there and don't get discouraged if it comes back, just get it took care of and stay aggressive and don't miss any appointments. We are here for you and you are part of the crew now!! :) ;)

Glad you are here. Sorry you are here. At such a young age, it is too bad you had to get this. You sre on the right track and I predict a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNGGG Life and this bump in the road will only serve to make you stronger.

Besides........ You are one of US now! The twisted, the strange, the weird, the hopeless optomist, the anti pessimist, and the eternally youthful.

Or is this just me?

Anyway, Welcome and Long live the Survivor!

Patricia,

I am sure I would have developed diabetes if I continued with my poor diet and lack of exercising.

I am 6 feet tall and I weighed 265lbs. I just took it among myself back in October 2010 to start eating healthy and cutting out carbs, alcohol, minimizing my dairy, and exercising regularly. I am now down to 225lbs, and I was back to my usual routine from a few years ago which was going to the gym twice a week and playing soccer on three different teams.

Mike,

Thanks for the link. I am wondering if the doctors should reduce the dosage amount since the side effects that I am already experiencing are at what seem to be on the higher side.

Jason...just curious as you said you had lost 40 lbs. Were you diabetic and perhaps on the drug ACTO's?
