Had the follow-up with the doctor after a biopsy a week ago. The cancer is still there. I start another cycle of 6 chemo treatments, one a week for 6 weeks, next Monday, then another biopsy at 8 weeks. They didn't do more resections to remove the cancer, because it's in the lining. If the chemo doesn't work, then next step is to remove the bladder.

They added Interferon to the chemo mix. As soon as I heard "Interferon" I knew the cost was going to go through the roof. It did. Co-pay went from $46.53 per treatment, to $346.53 per treatment. The Interferon added to the treatment is less than 1/8th ounce. Yup, the stuff is expensive!$2400 an ounce. It must be made from rust-free E9 body panels....

Keep hanging on in there. I have had my prostate removed in 2002, Bowel tumour removed in 2011, liver tumour in 2012 and I am now 5 years clear and still driving my cars! My advice would be always find the best treatment you can afford. As in all areas there are some who are better than others. When I had my liver done it was state of the art surgery. My local man had done 5 or 6. The guy who did it had done 1100!!
My advice, take a second expert opinion before letting them remove the bladder. I am not a medical man but I have got the T shirt!
As a friend of mine used to say to women at parties "I am not a gynaecologist but I'll have a good look at it for you!"

Wishing you the very best Ken. As I mentioned before, my father had it. The series of treatments appear to have killed it and he won't have to have his bladder removed.

That's exactly the result I'm hoping for. It's good to hear of someone that had a successful outcome. Thank you.
