Your kidney problem is another very good reason why you should be treated at a place that deals with complicated situations. One good thing is that experts like a challenge such as you :)

Sarcomatoid is a rare form of bladder cancer, as you know. My advice would be to go ASAP to a place that sees and treats a wide variety of bladder cancer and has expertise in unusual situations. Examples of such places would include MD Anderson, Sloan-Kettering, Johns-Hopkins, USC, Stanford, and the National Cancer Institute. While radical cystectomy might be the start of treatment, there are new and exciting immunotherapy drugs in research which might be useful in your case. They would only be available in research institutions.

You might wish to contact Dr. Argawal at the National Cancer Institute for advice:
