If you have bladder cancer, there are several available treatment options. Your doctor will help you decide which treatment is best for you and this will depend on a number of things. These include your age, how much cancer has spread (doctors call this your cancer “stage”), and any other health conditions you have.

Also recommended for bladder removal but when I went to surgeon he said I was too old (78) and in bad physical shape (overweight with large stomach) for surgery.  Have since started chemotheraphy and radiation.

I have stage 2 cancer in bladder.  I am currently going through chemotherapy and radiation as surgeon did not think I was a good candidate for bladder removal.  My problem at present is that I have extreme pain at the end of the penis when I pee.  Doctor has given me Azo and then a prescription for Phenzopyridine, neither of which did any thing to relieve my pain.  Has anyone else had this happen?  Don't want to go on pain killers as I still have 5 to 6 weeks of treatment left to get through and am unsure about future pain and fear of getting "hooked" on pain pills (if they will even work).

i was diagnosed at age 45....about a year ago and have since had radiation and light chemo. had a pet scan done about 10 days ago and was informed it had spread to my lymph nodes in my back and surrounding areas. 2 days later i was admitted to the hospital for acute hematuria which is passing blood and quarter sized clots. very painfull 4 days in hospital but finaly cleared up. was told it would keep happening because the tumor in my bladder would continue to shed tissue. i m not sure what will come next or how much longer i will live. guess its a waiting game to see where it shows up next. i started imunnatherapy and have my second treatment next week. hoping it will buy me some more time. i refuse to take heavy chemo.....just cant see how  poisoning my body will save or extend my life. i have a wife and 6 yr. old daughter at home and i worry about there future. i also worry about how much suffering and pain i m gonna go through.can  anybody relate to my condition? would like some info on what comes next or just to share your story. thanks!
