I am a 47 year old woman who has been diagnosed with third stage bladder cancer.I am totally devastated and am finding it difficult to cope. I have to decide which method to use when they remove my bladder. They advised a catheter but the hole thought of it freaks me out.After I went back to see them they advised the neobladder or try chemotherapy.The odds are low if the bladder is not removed 50% but I may be in the 50%.He said what ever way I go I only have a 50% chance.I really don't know what to do. Has anyone got any advise? I want to choose the right way and I just want to see my grandchildren.
