I got some really not good news today from the biopsy two weeks ago.
Dr. Keel (urologist) says my bladder has to come out. Cancer continues to grow. Starting to invade the muscle around the bladder. Scheduled for surgery Oct. 22 at 7:30 in the morning. I have to be there at 5:30. Argh. That was the first open date he had. I hope it's not waiting too long. They were hoping the chemo would work. The type of cancer I have is resistant to chemo, but they tried the two kinds of chemicals that work the best and they didn't have any effect. The doctor drew me a chart of the progression of treatment. We ran out of options after the last resection/biopsy. It's gone from low grade to high grade, fast growing. Fortunately not considered aggressive....yet.
Sorry to burden you guys with this. I had to tell somebody. Pretty down right now.
