On May 31, 2017 when I went to the emergency room thinking I had a urinary tract infection. I found out I had a tumor in my bladder. When I heard the news. It felt like I was kicked in the gut. The thoughts about my children and their future really weighed on my mind.
Shortly after hearing the news. I made an appointment with an Urologist to start treatment. I had to sign medical releases to have my record from the emergency room to the Urologist. When the Doctor looked at the records and done a scope into my bladder. He found the tumor. He wasted no time for me to have surgery to cut the tumor out the bladder and do localized chemotherapy to wipe out what cancer is left.
A week later after the doctor’s visit. I had my surgery with no complications. I was sent home with a catheter. I had an appointment the next day back at the doctors office to have my catheter removed. Be removing the catheter/ I have chemotherapy injected into my bladder.
After the lab results of the first surgery. He wanted to schedule another surgery 30 days later. That second surgery put me in the hospital three weeks later with a bladder infection during hurricane Harvey. I was in a Houston Hospital for a week.
After I was released from the Hospital. I had a third surgery to do a biopsy. The prognosis is that Doctor suggested was two things. First was Chemotherapy and radiation treatment. After that I would have a fourth surgery where they wanted to remove my bladder and prostrate gland, put a stoma in me so I can pee in a bag or take from my large intestine and build a new bladder where I would use catheters to urinate out of.
Not very good options for a quality of life. I would like to have sex and be able to function at work. I would like to lose nothing in my body. I have no more symptoms anymore. Still the doctors insist I go through with it. The Doctors may mean well and are brainwashed like everyone else. I want to know there is a far less painful solution.
So if there is anyone who has went through this and has some natural methods that has worked where there is no more surgeries, never had to go through chemotherapy or radiation. I would like to know. Also I could use all your prayers and encouragement.
God Bless you all.
