THE PATH TO RC

Lotech,

So nice to hear good news. You gotta go with the flow, so to speak, and it is sweet when it is going your way. Hoping for an easy recovery, but you already know that it will take some time and a lot of work. Keep us in the loo-p.

Best,
Jack

Lotech,

Having had a bit over 2 years to think about bladder cancer, and still uncertain about the near future, I finally had a comforting breakthrough thought.

WE ARE MORE THAN JUST THE SUM OF OUR PARTS.

Kidney, ureter, bladder, prostate, urethra, nodes, whatever - all of those are just hardware, and there's an OP for that. I don't need all of that junk to be me.

We are going to get through this, and still be us.

Best,
Jack

Thanks Jack,

I just keep woundering what it will be like after. Monday ill see if i keep my right kidney.
Again prepared for which ever way this goes to get rid of BC, but losing big parts makes me wounder. Well ill let you know Monday evening I hope.
