This is my first time writing. I am 57 and was diagnosed with bladder cancer 4 years ago and in October 2010 had a cystectomy. I have always been very positive and I can not say enough about the treatment I received. I am very a athletic person and able to go back to playing handball, racquetball, and tennis within months after my operation. The only problem I am having is that before my operation I was always positive and happy. Now every once in a while I get very depressed. I am
married and because of my physical changes sexually get depressed very easy. I am very careful not to show my feelings because my family has never seen this new part of me. In every other way I am extremely happy. I teach and coach and
love every other part of my life.
