I am going to the oncologist this morning to get the results from the scan yesterday. I already know that it is muscle invasive from the TURBT I had two weeks ago. My urologist and oncologist have said I need chemo first then bladder removal. I just don't know if I can get through this. Is there a female on this site that has her bladder removed? Maybe it's the same procedure for males, I don't know. Right now I am just a mass of confusion and fear, terrible, terrible fear. Scared of chemo and scared of he surgery. Can anyone give me some hope? Thank you.
