I just registered on this website and read your information on your bladder cancer. I as well am a Viet Nam veteran and was diagnosed with bladder cancer and went through several surgeries, and my final surgery was a radical cystectomy with a il/conduit. I am wondering if you received any information with the VA of them approving this as a disability associated with Agent Orange.
I would appreciate any information, it would be of help. Thank you. Be well
Recently I went down to the Government offices that take claims for consideration on illnesses suffered related to Vietnam. Bladder Cancer is one cancer along with Prostate that are considered. If you were in Vietnam and have either you may want to make an appointment to see the Services Division. They will get all my records from the Cleveland Clinic, review them and let me know if I have a successful claim. Who knows what particular body situation sparks this disease, its up for grabs on cause in each case. This could have attributed to mine.
