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
