How often are you having the chemo? Are you having MVAC? I wish you all the best.

We'll ride the waves with you 'til the storm calms!

Peace and Love,
Dave

Lotech,

Not what you wanted, not what any of us want to hear. We all hope that the high rate of positive results, when bladder cancer is caught early, will apply to us, and figure that the back-up option of a RC is not in our future. The good news is that RC IS the second chance option.

I wish you all the best as you move toward that 'new normal'. Please keep us posted on your success in heading down the RC road. Any number of us currently on the forum will likely be following you down that path.

Best to you and yours,
Jack
