Hi I am new to the forum.
I was diagnosed with Genitourinary Bladder Cancer. Clinical Stage II (AJCCv8) TMN cT2, cN0 cM0. Can you please interpret this diagnosis for me?
I am scheduled for an aggressive Chemo - 3 sessions of 2 days (MVAC Dose Dense with Cisplatin) 14 days apart.
After about 20 days, the intention is to have a Radical Cystectomy with a ileal conduit and stoma.

I am  in a daze and would greatly appreciate comments on the process outlined above and what Do's and Dont's 
Thanks for your help
