invasive bladdder cancer

Sydelle,

I sure hope that the lymph node is some benign problem and not a bladder cancer recurrence. So sorry to hear about it. I sure wish they could do instant reports on pathology samples. The waiting (and waiting and waiting and waiting) is just such a pain in the <insert favorite body part here>!

Please let us know when you get the results back and tell your husband that we are thinking about you both and hoping that everything is OK.

Hello Sydelle... I wish you godspeed on getting a good report on your husband. I know you are right there together in sharing the worry and waiting. It seems the longest wait in the world.

George, you are right on with that ever nagging question. Hardly a day passes that it doesn't pop into my head. I'm on my first six-month cycle and I can't help but worry what that little b***ard is up to while no one is looking.

I'm sure I would be a basketcase by now if it were not for this site. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement, Sydelle, even as you are going through a trying time of your own right now.

Catherine

Best wishes... Catherine

Sydelle, will be hoping that the news is good and that by next week you will be wondering what the worry was about!! You have hit the nail on the head with your description of what this group means to many of us....Those who frequent this site DO know what you are going through and will go through it with you.

Damn this bladder cancer!Every time I gripe about going for another checkup, I know that this little bastard can be hiding and waiting for a chance to strike.

I am thinking only positive thoughts for you and your husband. We all ask the same question "can this come back?" and every 3 months we get to find out.

Here's to a good report

I am the caretaker of my 64 year old RC ( 3 years ago) husband. I have always followed this site, and became part of the family of BC supporters, although sometimes reading and remaining in the background. Many times, I have reached out in my heightened anxiety and desperation. Unless you or a family member or friend has experienced the emotional pain , of BC, it is difficult to speak, explain and share, with others, at times. My husband is awaiting results of a biopsy for a lymph node which may or may not be recurrent bladder cancer. Obviously, the waiting is horrific; however, in the back of my mind ,I remember all of you, who travel , many times a similar path, and in my prays, I ask that we all be comforted and given the strength to stand. I thank you all for showing us, over the years the courage ,grace and dignity of understanding what "this" means.
