My father-in-law was just diagnosed with stage 3 possible 4 bladder cancer. He is supposed to see a cancer specialist Feb. 4th. What advice can you give us to deal with the news of his diagnosis and what kind of questions should we ask at our visit? I can honostly say that this is one of the hardest things in my life that I have had to deal with. I am close to me husband's family. My father-in-law is only 42 and he is very depressed. They have started him on anti-depressants though. We know they will have to take his bladder since it has invaded the muscle. But since we are new at all this we want to be prepared going to see this specialist. Any feed back and prayers is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
