I was diagnosed with "transitional cell carcinoma" (bladder cancer) in early 2019. It was in my kidney, and the right kidney had to be removed, along with the bladder cuff and several lymph nodes. Although chemo was recommended, after the surgery, I opted for a vegan anti-cancer diet instead. I adhered to the diet for about ten months, but gradually began slipping off. 23 months after my surgery a CT scan found that the cancer had spread to a lymph node near the surgery site. Again, I opted for no chemo, mainly because my remaining kidney has left me with Stage 3 kidney disease - I want very much to avoid dialysis, it at all possible. I was, however, eligible for a new "immunotherapy" treatment - Keytruda. I'd be very interested in corresponding with other bladder cancer patients who are fighting their cancer with immunotherapy. I'm feeling rather alone in this treatment. Thanks.
