Saw the specialist 9/22. Definitely a mass. Which I knew.. scheduled me immediately next day for mri and petscan.. which confirmed. Good news is bladder and urethra look good but lymph nodes may be infected. Did pre op and am scheduled for complete pelvic exam and biopsies this coming Tuesday. My son is on fast track home from Chicago to take me. I'm mentally confident the end result will be fine but preparing myself for a rough ride. Side note- would this be a crazy time to get a dog?
