Hello there community. My name is Jennifer and my husband was diagnosed with Stage 2, high grade, muscle invasive bladder cancer as of April, 2021. He had the muscle invasive tumor removed as of 04/13/2021 and he is having strong chemotherapy treatments, but he is completely against having his bladder removed.
Are there others out there whom have managed to keep your bladder through this disease, specifically when diagnosed as Stage 2, high grade, muscle invasive?
When I try to research it, if he keeps his bladder he is just increasing the chance for the cancer to metastasize. But he is extremely against having his bladder removed.
His last CT Scan didn't show any signs of cancer in his bladder, in fact his bladder looked normal. So, it's hard for us to understand that if his bladder looks normal, without cancer, why does it still need to be removed???
Any resources, personal testimonies or recommendations are welcome! Thank you in advance! From, a loving caregiver...hoping for the best for my husband of almost 15 years.
