Thanks guys for the comments. The only thing now is the pain of the tube. Biggest dam tube I have ever seen. But that comes out next Wednesday.
Yes I know that any cancer can be fatal but you notice that is not bothering me in the least. We all have to go sometime in the end and I too believe in a higher power.
You may have notice that I do not ague with anyone about God. I decided it does little good so I am going to let God sort it all out.
Funny I did not start this form for support or pity. Save your pity for someone who needs it. The support is nice and I am really fining out who my friends in real life really are. I could not receive better care then I am getting at home. Even my former family is helping. Strange story about that one.
You see, I have a sense of humor that plays a big part in this. My girlfriend and I can joke or talk about anything that comes up. Like I said, there are options out there that can be done and I am hopping for the best. Again Thanks.
I have been told several times,"you may die". Well. We. None of us are going to get out of here alive. Do your best. Think positive. Pray. Try to find your place in the great nothingness. We all there. I hope to see you. We will shake hands and pray for the unknowing left on Earth.

Love, Moe.

In his case the cancer spreads quickly when found in that area. Almost always fatal. If not treated at an early stage.

In 2006, I was told this was a type of cancer that did not spread to other organs. Hope he has the same opinion.
Guess I will find out the news March 26th.

I did some research after reading your post. It has to be in stage 5. That is when it works its way though the bladder wall and to other organs. I am guessing mine is at stage 3, maybe 4.

I am not a big DavidM fan but that seems to be a little out of line. What a dip.

I don't see it as out of line if it is true. There was a wwe wrestler that died from the same thing a few years back but it was in stage 5

Tomorrow I go to the lab to get the tube removed. Be glad to have it gone but I know it is going to hurt like nothing before. Welcome to the golden years.

The most I have learned is about people. I can not say enough about my girlfriend. She has been there 150% one hundred per cent of the time. I really don't know what I would have done without her.

Your girlfriend sounds like a wonderful person. I was in the same situation. Hug her tight.

Well all I can say is, I was right. I never felt pain like I did today. But now that is over, thanks for the comments about my girl. That is another story within itself.

Its not the most relevant comment, but today I underwent a tilt table test for aheart condition I've developed. If it's anything like the stress test I had late 2012, I'm going to pay $3,000+ for somebody to change my position three times. Most expensive standing nap I've ever taken.

Well this is interesting. I had a appointment for March 26th. They called today to cancel it and moved it to next Monday. Said they must see me as soon as possible. Seem like my own diagnoses may be correct. Now is the treatment worth the pain that I must go though to get cured?

Wishing you the best. Pain can be managed. Hard to tolerate, but managed with the correct medications or procedures. It is your journey. Gather all the information possible before making a choice.

Nothing that a double dose of morphine can't cure.

I'm hopeful for your health,but I think I would be remiss if I didn't suggest to you the following advice.

Life is too short. Don't you think it's time to marry that wonderful and supportive woman you refer to as your girlfriend?

Stop living in sin. You're selfishly taking the milk without buying the cow. As my Father would say.

Be a man. Show some respect to those who have given you their unconditional attention and support.

Well I just got home from that doctor appointment and the news was what I expected. First he wants me to start chemo then comes the operation. They plan on removing both the bladder and prostate (cystectomy). Will be in the hospital from 7 to 14 days. 50-50 chance that the cancer will not spread. As far as he could tell it is contend within the bladder right now. Lets hope for the best. This means I will be wearing a bag for the rest of my life. The operation I can deal with. At least there will not be any more tubes.

I am so sorry that you have cancer. I'm glad it's contained within the bladder though. Praying it won't spread. Think positive and take care.
