Thinking of you Big Fella.  Hope you get ice cream and jelly and some decent coffee in there.  Best wishes for a happy outcome.

Cheers for now, and see you soon I hope.

Regards to Mrs Grumpy ...

Hi Bob, had four tumours removed from my bladder on 8th November. Done by entering through the urethra, prostrate and into the bladder. Passing urine very painful after the procedure but now home and recovering. Still waiting to find what stage the cancer is at which will determine future treatment. Will have to get the camera job up the doodah every few months for the rest of my life. Chemo for the non Hodgkins lymphoma has been put off for the moment but the hospital say they can give me an infusion once a week for four weeks to slow it down until the bladder problem is sorted. Hay ho, that's life ???

Thanks John ... much appreciated. At least that's a job done and out the way to clear the path for hopefully less invasive treatment. Fingers crossed for the future an. I hope you and Mrs Grumpy have a pleasant Christmas.

All the best John.

Bob.
