: Hi I posted the message below on Aug 1 and no one has reponded to me. There must be some encouraging words out there somewhere!!! or someone who has had experience with this type of cancer.. i'd appreciate anything at this point!
: Has anyone had experience with this type of cancer.
: my father has had cancer in the ureter and had his kidney, ureter and half the bladder removed 4 years ago. One year later he got a mild tumour in the bladder had it removed. Both times he had chemo. also the first chemo was the worst. He has also been taking essiac since 1st diagnosed. Now the Dr. says he thinks there is a recurrence in the other ureter right near the bladder. The results will be in soon. What I am looking for is reassurance that just because it is his 3rd battle with this does not mean he will probably die this time. I know none of you can promise me such a thing. But are there any stories that can give me hope!! Also, the results have not come in yet, would i be foolish to think that maybe the Dr. is wrong and all will be ok? I am so scared, I dont want to loose my father and I dont want him to go through this again. He was doing so well!!!! Can someone please give me some reassurance of any kind PLEASE!!!!
I cannot help you out with your dad's type of cancer, but I can give you my support and prayers. I know just how hard this is since I just lost my mother to SCLC the 27th of July. One feels all alone and helpless, I know. If you just need to talk please write to me by email. You can do this by clicking on my name and it should give you my email. Just keep the faith. LOVE and HUGS Maggie
