Hi all

I will not be having surgery as my bladder cancer has spread outside the bladder :( . I also have nodules in my lungs. So it is on to chemo for me.

I dodged a bullet ten years ago with lung cancer so I guess it was borrowed time.

Thank you all for your support

sorry to hear that news Eileen. Since you dodged the bullet l0 yrs ago..what type lung cancer was it? Is it a return of the original or is this an extension of the bladder cancer to the lungs? Will you be consulting with a thoracic surgeon just in case? I just want you to be on the right chemo.

adenocarcinoma stage 1A--no chemo just surgery
lung cancer will spread very early on

this is not lung cancer but bladder cancer from biopsy samples

I am not sure how chemo does with bc? form what I read not so good.

"spread" is certainly a word we don't like to hear. It is my sincere hope that we watch for it to be slowed, then stopped, then eliminated as a hazard. We are with you in the battle.
