Cancer update

I visited with my uro today and had a cysto. No tumors. Good news. There is still redness and healing from the allergic reaction to the mitomycin C. He called it (the med) "nasty stuff." He also said he say a bladder get torn up (like mine) and he hesitates to use it ever. Strong words. I asked him what the future held and he said it will continue to get better, but may never completely heal (not sure of his exact words). I did tell him I have pain with urination when drinking anything besides water. I also told him that leaking and urgency is less and less frequent. I'll return for another cysto in 4 months with the plan to graduate to every 6 months.

Knowing there is no tumor/cancer, I made an appointment with the orthopedist to deal with the broken appliance in my left knee. The appointment is in August.

My goal with all of this is to continue the good health trend. My diabetes was a little off kilter today, but then, I did have lunch out and a piece of pie.

Being 60 has been an interesting ride!
