In 2008 I was diagnosed with bladder cancer and had my bladder removed in 2011. At which time they found 3 lymph nodes that had cancer cells. Went thought 8 months of chemo and 2 months of radiation. Thought that would take care of it. Well had a ct scan and then a pet scan this week and now it is in the lymph nodes under my breast bone and in the lower lob of my right lung. I have a biopsy this coming Tuesday to determine if it is the bladder cancer that has spread or a different type of cancer. All I really care to do is sleep and cry - very depressed at this time. But know that I have to meet this disease head on and can not stick my head in the sand because it will do no good. I just needed to vent. Thanks for listening.View Thread
