Bladder Cancer | Diagnosed 2020

Cancer Stage | High Grade Stage 1

Advice to patients: Don’t shut everyone out; don’t hold your feeling in; do not be afraid to accept or ask for help.

 I went to the ER with flank pain, and they found multiple stones, including an 8mm in the right. The doctor went in for a kidney stone removal and was shocked when the doctor told him that they weren’t able to remove the stones due to a tumor that was found in his bladder. The tumor was removed, and tests were done. The doctor thought the cancer would be superficial low grade, but that wasn’t the case. When pathology came back, the doctor said it is a high-grade cancer. I was Diagnosed 3/12/20 Kidney stones removed 3/20/20 Stents, and additional stones removed 4/16/20 1st BCG treatment was 4/30/20.
