Joe...you are an inspiration for me! I crumble with every bad news received...asking why me...you instead choose to face each trial as they come, with optimism and courage!! Thank you so much for sharing this with us...sending to you much love, encouragement and healing thoughts! Gina
All bladder biopsies are negative!!!
Looks like root cause is my left kidney. Kidney wash proved it out to be in my left kidney with malignant cells found by pathology.
I've had consultations in two hospitals and both concur that next step should be to go back in for direct visualization and biopsies of ureter and kidney. We'll cross the next bridge upon receiving results of that exercise.
At least it continues to be interesting. More to follow as info is received.
