ongoing bladder cancer
Last updated: February 2023
In Febuary of 2007 I was lifting a large ladder over a fence to return it to my neighbor. I felt a great pain in my stomach and a feeling that I had to urinate. I went into the house to use the bathroom and I was bleeding when I was urinating. I called my wife and she returned home and took me to the hospital emergency room.
The tests said... Cancer
After tests and scans they said I had bladder cancer. I was set up with a bladder cancer doctor and she used an electric current to blast the cancer cells. This has been reoccurring every 3 to 6 to 12 months every year. I still have my bladder but it is really scarred up.
Cancer isn't the only setback...
In the meantime I have gotten CLL and AIHA and no longer have an immune system along with stage 4 COPD and stage 1.5 diabetes and high blood pressure and autonomic neuropathy and adrenal atrophy. now I have been out of the hospital for 6 months and I feel better every day. Things are not as bad as they make them out to be.
This is my story.
