Re: The Carer

Updated information : my OH is doing well after the radical prostatectomy now nearly four years ago. He has to take a yearly blood test for the PSA level, and then return to the oncologist-urologist for an annual check. However, since that time, our son, aged 44 has had bladder cancer, which he has ...

Re: Tumour in the bladder

Promised to update everyone on the forum regarding Greg's progress. He underwent the second cystoscopy two weeks ago under general anaesthetic. The immediate results were that he is in remission for the moment, but that "it" could well recur. Obviously for the whole family's sake, we hope ...

Re: Tumour in the bladder

Just a little further update to give encouragement and support to those suffering from bladder cancer. Our son, 44 and daddy to two little darlings, seems to be doing much better as there are fewer problems in the nether regions and he certainly looks a good deal less awful than he did 4 months ago....

Re: Tumour in the bladder

Updating the latest on our son's bladder cancer in the hope that it might just help someone else. There is, of course, good news and bad : the former is that after resting during the afternoon of the weekly treatments, he is able to go back to work the following day, or has been able to do so thus f...

Re: Tumour in the bladder

Yes folks, it is another dose of the nasties. Our son is shocked as is the whole family, but we have no option but to face it, right? He must undergo a course of chemotherapy followed by another cystoscopy thereafter. Invasiveness is A1 which is not too bad on a scale of 1-4, but aggressiveness is 2...

Re: Tumour in the bladder

Our son [aged 44] was operated at St Albans hospital on 23/11 to remove the tumour in the bladder. He was discharged the following day after receiving a large dose of chemotherapy as they "needed the bed". In retrospect though, this may be just as well as the hospital was not clean in our ...

Re: Tumour in the bladder

I am very sorry - I should have made this a great deal clearer. Our son [the patient] is living in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. Basically he has no option but to suffer under the NHS but we have to give them their due, they have reacted very quickly. We leave the day after tomorrow to give help and...

Re: Tumour in the bladder

Thank you so much Karen for the link, which we perused.
It is extremely comprehensive and well thought out, only frightening in all it's implications.
But deal with it we have to and stay calm for the little ones' [6 and 4] sake. Thanks again

Tumour in the bladder

Oh boy! Never thought we would be here again less than three years later. But this time it is not for us, but incredibly for our 44 year old son, father of two darling little girls. Please does anyone have any information or advice on cancer of the bladder? Pre-Op tests to be carried out on Monday n...

Re: Hello fellow combatants

Well, bravo that you have such a wonderfully positive attitude despite the rather gloomy prognosis. Keep fighting! We did, and one year on, have just come back from a bicycle ride. Last week we hiked up a very steep Swiss mountain to 2275 meters so there's life in the old dog yet! No-one says it is ...
