We appreciate all your responses. Yes, it is Dr. Bermejo. He and his staff are great. Dave, I will be emailing you as we are still in SA this morning, will be leaving to go home for a few days and return Tuesday for the cysto on Wed.
Patricia, we do like San Antonio very much and it is just about 4 hours from our home. Alice, I still have time to worry about you, and something has to be done - of course I don't know what. I think that is one of the problems with bladder cancer (probably all cancers).
I just can't express in words how you have made my day reading your post. I am sooooo happy and excited for you and your husband that you feel comfortable with the very caring staff that you have described. I really am over-joyed and I feel part of your worries have been lifted. That is such a relief to me.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post and sharing the wonderful news with all of us.
I truly feel confident now that you and your husband are on your way to starting a whole new, successful, and, long-lived life together.
All of my love and best wishes go out to you and your husband.
God Bless you New2This!
PS. Now don't be worrying about me either, I am okay, and I will succeed also. You just take care of yourself and your husband now.
My name is Dave . I had a Studer neo Bladder replacement preformed by Dr Bermejo from the CTRC in San Antonio on Jan 19, 2007 . I am going to assume you are seeing him also. He is a great Dr as well as a great person. Your husband is in great hands there. Please let me know if your husband would like to speak with me about my experience. I would be more than happy to speak with him. You could send me an email and we could set something up. The Dr may have given you some #'s of past patients of his already. He did for me and I called them. It really helps. I was fortunuate that I live in San Antonio and Dr Bermejo was here. Please let me know if I can be of any help for you and your husband.
