Danielle,

It is QUITE impressive that your husband was able to swim and play tennis throughout his treatments. Sounds like you both are fighting this and continuing to enjoy life and your family. :)

Hi there, this is the first time I have posted on this wonderful site.(I have been lurking as I felt rather shy to join in, oh well here goes.) I am from Israel. I have been following Al's posts and I feel that he will cope.
In the beginning it is a shock, but we mustn't give up.
We must look at bladder cancer as a setback and definitely not as a defeat.

My husband was diagnosed over two and a half years ago with BC.Complete bladder and prostate removal, after chemo. Unfortunately after 20 months,it is now metastatic BC as earlier this year, following PET CT, a few cells were found in his stomach and one or two lymph nodes also.

Hubby takes this in his stride and is a fighter. He doesn't tell anyone what has happened to him,(not even his close family) Throughout the treatments he continued to play tennis and swimming. Unbelievable isn't it..
Hubby is coping beautifully with his stoma, chemo and radiation treatments. (he completed 25 radiation treatments end of September).Mid December he will do another CT and I am sure all will be fine. He is putting on weight again and his bloods are really great. We take each day as it comes and we plod on really enjoying our grandchildren and life in general. I am 68 and hubby is 71.
We even managed a two week holiday in the UK between Chemo and Radiation treatments.

My heart goes out to Allan as I'm sure he is scared, but once he has got over the first hurdle he will realize that he will pull through with flying colours.
