Hello New2This,

Thank you so much for giving us an update. I really am glad to hear your husband's bone scan and chest CT were clear. I bet that was a big relief lifted off of your shoulders.

I will be thinking of you both and you will be in my prayers that his cystectomy will be successful.

Just know, we are here if you ever need.

My heart and prayers are going out to you. Please take care of yourself in the meantime.

Your BC friend,

Alice

My husband's cystectomy is scheduled for Aug 6. He is leaning toward neobladder, but is also still researching. His bone scan and chest CT were clear, which was a big relief to us.

New2This, any new news? I do hope all is going the best it can for you during this time. How is your husband holding up? How are you holding up?

Just know that I am thinking of you and do hope you can post when you can.

Please take care.

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).

Oh My Dear Sweet and Uplifting Friend,

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!

Your Friend,

Alice

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.

New2this,

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.


Sincerely

Dave D.
