My wife had her right kidney, ureter, part of her bladder, and two lymph nodes removed in February, 2010. There was cancer in her kidney, ureter, and one lymph node. She was diagnosed with transitional cell cancer and the staging was T3,N1,M0 - stage III. Her medical oncologist will begin a 4-week cycle treatment using Cisplatin and Gemzar. We have not visited a radiation oncologist yet, but I imagine we will soon to see if there is any benefit from having radiation after the chemotherapy.
Has anyone had the treatment I've described and would you share what you've learned. Thank you.
