Just a quick update since it has been a while.

As a reminder my wife had plasmacytoid bladder cancer. Chemo was ineffective and she was eventually staged at 3a w no lymph node involvement at the time of RC/IC.

She just had her 6 month checkup today. No sign of cancer. She is accustomed to her new normal. Every day she is grateful to still be cancer free. Next checkup will be at the 9 month mark in November.

I will update post then.

Thanks

Just quick update since it has been a while.

My wife is now able to change bag by herself. She is able to drive over 6 hours to see her family. She has become accustomed to her new normal. Every day she is grateful to still be cancer free. Next checkup is the 6 month scan on Aug 13/14.

I will update post then.

Thanks

Progress! James, be assured you are helping everyone that passes by the site. M. D. Anderson is an amazing hospital and the staff is world class. Thanks. While I have not had to use them, living in New Braunfels they are my backup.
