Hello my name is Barbara, I'm new to this forum. I was diagnosed with bladder cancer about two months ago I'm still a little in denial you can't really blame me though I've been told that after this surgery I'm about to have which is removal of a 20 inch tumor, with I don't know how many centimeters will be removed and then they will insert a stent so I can rid of the backed up urine in
right kidney which is non functional. If all goes well I hope they don't have to take out my bladder and my right kidney. Has anyone here had a stent inserted? and how was it uncomfortable? painful? If anyone has had this procedure please share with me your experience.
