Dear New2this...how wonderful that you've found such a caring and helpful staff to assist you. They are doing lots of research there. I wonder if you've seen Dr. Dipen....he uses robotic surgery for cystectomy...also did his fellowship at Memorial Sloan.....not to shabby. I'm very happy for you. And San Antonio is a great city..........Pat

We think we have found our cancer treatment home.
We are at CTRC in San Antonio and they are super nice, caring people. The doctor spent a lot of time with us, as well as the medical oncologist, nurses and other staff. They have one administrative specialist who was very instrumental in getting us there, who has more heart and cares so much it is unbelievable.
My husband has had a number of tests already, including a bone scan and is scheduled for a comprehensive cysto next week. He will have another biopsy of the bladder as well as the prostate, which he hasn't had before.
The doctor has some concern about a lymph node but we can't be certain about that yet. Hopefully we will know more next week.

New2This, you truly are a remarkable and strong person. I really admire you for this.

Just know I will be thinking of you both and will have you in my prayers. Post when you can and when you are rested up.

My best wishes always,

Thanks Alice - we appreciate your concern.
We don't yet know more about my husband, except that the cancer is in the bladder muscle. We did not know this until Tuesday.
A lot has happened over the last few days, more than I can go into now, but because we are self-pay, it has been necessary for us to move from Houston to San Antonio for my husband's care. We were able to do this quickly, thank God, and have an appointment with a new doctor today.
I am thinking about you too, so good luck.

Hello New2This:

Just wanted to let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your husband.

I just can't imagine what you may be feeling at this moment and time, but do hope that you will remember all of us here on the board if you need someone or something.

I will be looking throughout the day to see if you have posted in hopes to hear good results.

My heart felt wishes and prayers go out to you this day.
