Bladder Cancer

Posted by Sophie's Mom on Sep 18, 2014 10:39 pm

Hello.  I was recently diagnosed with bladder cancer.  I am also a cervical cancer survivor.  I am looking to connect with those of you who are or have experience fighting this particular type of cancer.  I am looking for the voice of experience for anyone who has gone through removal of their bladder as I have many decisions to make quite quickly.  I would very much appreciate any advice that you can give.

Hi there, I've taken a bit of a look throughout our community, and you may be interested in reading a discussion thread called Radiation Therapy. In this particular discussion, Sammy describe his confliction with deciding upon radiation after having surgery for the removal of his bladder. You may also find it helpful to connect with our Peer Support program, through this program you can be connected with a volunteer who has gone through a similar cancer experience. The program is free, and you can reach them by calling 1 888 939-3333. 

Thinking of you,
