appreciate anybody having this problem to response for some advice.
I am sorry to hear about your bladder cancer. Sincerely, you should be entitled to a break after PCa.
It is surprising that doctors didnít see any abnormality during diagnosis of PCa. Usually apart of MRIs, they include cystoscopy to check for metastasis. I had two performed; at diagnosis of PCa and after surgery, and I recall seeing pinkly colour bladder walls on tv screen.
This is another bump in your journey and you will do it over again.
NCI has a booklet on bladder cancer you may want to read. Here is the link;
Wishing you the best.
