I was looking up some facts about someone who has stage 4 bladder cancer such as myself,and then I SEE those horrible odds.I have done the chemo well on my 5th on on monday,I am able to pee much better..little difficulty sometimes,and then I look at the outcomes. Like such to where they say oh if you have lymph nodes that are affected then that brings your chances of survival down to 10 percent. Can someone anyone tell me that they can remove the lymph nodes that are affected and that there is hope and yES U CAN CALL me an idiot for going on web sites and looking this stuff up...i hope i made the right descions. I had chemo and then the next step is surgury once we make sure the tumors have gone down. I know I may sound kind of all over the place but this is how my mind works sometimes..if there is anyone who knows the facts please let me know. and if anyone knows what they would be able to do since I am a little over 300 lbs would they be able to do a stoma I dont want to have to cath myself or anything like that I would rather just have the bag and go from there. any ideas,suggestions would be a big help thanks for putting up with me.
