Hi all, just an update on my cancer treatment
« on: March 14, 2019, 05:02:27 PM »
Having gone through chemo. for the bladder cancer I developed  I attended the Western General hospital today 3 months after my last treatment for a cystoscopy to see if it worked. Although there is still a patch inside my bladder that is red and inflamed due to the chemo. there was no sign of any tumours but they have taken a biopsy to be sure. Pretty sore to pass water at the momement and having frequent rushes to the toilet!!!  :o

Great to hear that there's no sign of any tumours. Hopefully see you in the fields at a dig sometime.
