Im thinking the worst case scenario, loss of one kidney and an external appliance. I know im not the only one facing this but sometimes it feels like it.

Jul 17 will decide the next course what ever happens RC on the 20th. I'll keep you posted

Lotech,

I keep waiting for you to post the good news that the caner is out and gone.

All of us here know that we will do whatever is needed to get through this BC. Yours is the current story reminding the rest of us how many twists and turns can happen along the way. One day things are looking up, the next day not so much.

Thinking good thoughts for your and yous as you be begin another ride on the emotional roller coaster waiting for yet more information from the next inside inspection.

Best,
Jack

Well just left the Urologist Office, not great news. a spot has been found on my right ureter. wasn't there before chemo. Doc says we will have to view it under anesthesia to see if its cancer. if it is Ill lose my right kidney as well as my bladder and prostate next month. This will mean I will get an external bag vice internal. I always new that was a possibility but put it in the back of my mind. Its a sad in a way but bottom line I need to get rid of this cancer! Here's hoping for the best!
