Hi everyone.  I am a 56 year old woman that was diagnosed with agressive stage 2 high risk bladder cancer after having a TURBT done.  The Urology Oncologist informed me that my best treatment was to undergo three months of intense chemotherapy (MVAC regimen) followed by an RC.  In January of 2015 I began my chemotherapy treatments and finished in March.  I then had a CT scan done and the tumor had shrunk quite considerably.  I prayed about this and decided that being monitored would be the best appraoch now, even my Oncologist was surprised on how much the tumor had shrunk.  My question is what is the life expectancy of stage 2 bladder cancer without surgery?
