Hi I wish you the best. I was diagnosed with High Grade mussel invasive bladder cancer Stage 2 in October. Today I visited an oncologist and he said there was a shorter program of 6 weeks or a longer pogrom of 12 weeks. Where you giving the two options and if so how did you decide on the the 6 week regiment?

thank you.

Tech,

Until you hear from the urologist, let's just figure that the blood is because of the known Gemzar side effect of causing bleeding. The uro will figure all that out. Don't sweat about what it is until you know. Enjoy Thanksgiving.
