How are you today?
I thought I would open this discussion for us to talk about bladder cancer and its affect on daily life.
How does your bladder cancer diagnosis affect you in the day-to-day? Does it present any particular struggles or difficulties? How do you manage and cope?

@Courtney_J Hi, I'm in remission now, but I guess I can think about how it affected me.
I was lucky in that we caught it early, but before I knew I had some blood in my urine and then the constant "need to go". I at first thought it was a prostate thing because of my age. Again, I was lucky in that I just had the TURBT and BCG, so I just really had the brief recovery from that and I was and still am in remission. I imagine it could have been much worse for me had things been different.
