Hi Shipmate,

We may have crossed paths in the Navy days. I was an engineering LDO primarily on gas turbine ships (destroyer and cruisers). I was a gas turbine engineer when I got my commission. I joined in 1976 and retired in 1996. I miss the navy days but I do have a lot of shipmates I stay in contact with. Thanks for your support. Ben

Welcome the the group shipmate. I'm sorry that you have the occasion to join but this is a very good place to get info and support.

I too am a retired Naval Officer, 56 yrs old and a SWO. I came down with Bladder Cancer in early 08 and had my R/C in July of 08 with a neo. I know of at least one other Naval Officer on the site, I know him outside of the site and he has been up on the Sunday chat a couple of times

I too have heard good things about Barnes. I think you're being treated at a good place and it sounds like you have the right team. Please feel free to ask any questions that you have and I'll talk on the phone if that is better for you.

Thanks so much Ray. It makes me feel so good to know I have people like you and the others in my corner. There's nothing worse than talking to people about BC that have no clue what I am talking about. I just love this forum and everyone is so thoughtful and completely sincere. Thanks for the prayers!

Herb, Catherine, and Mark,

My head is still spinning from the doctor visit yesterday. I do think it is the best option for me if the next scope shows no cancer in the lower 2/3rds. I guess I'm lucky the tumor is at the top front away from anything important,

Thanks so much for the encouraging words, I think starting next week I will post my updates by number so that others can follow later on.
