yet another update
hi Dr Bets

since i last updated you i have dveloped a brain tumor. i was supposed to have a craniotomy last thursday but i got shingles the day before surgery and the re section has been scheduled for 20 October. Cancer is a curse. I have to stay with friends till i get the op and im not allowed to drive my car, im on anti swelling and anti seizure drugs as well and i will have to have radiotherapy afterwards.

Dear Bleeding
So sorry to hear this - do they think it is a metastasis of the bladder cancer? I will think of you when you go in for the operation, and wish for you a quick recovery and total removal of the tumour! Let me know how you are. I hope the shingles is better and not too painful.
