Hello dbroberts84-

Perhaps your husband's clinical trial physicans can connect you with a survivor or two.  Alternately, you can contact Anderson Network at 800-345-6324 or https://www2.mdanderson.org/sapp/contact/support/index.cfm

Take care and keep up with us on your husband's progress,

Laura Walther-Broussard, LCSW, Social Work Counselor

Subject:urothelial tcc stage four

I was diaGnosed 7 years ago with stage 4 tccc poorly differentiated with squamous metaplasia with multiple pulmonary lesions , I came close to dying but had a great response to chemo a regimen of carboplatinum gemzar and taxotere, next week gemzarer only, then a week off, 3 week cycles for 8 cycles. I had follow up biopsies at 8 months with a turp and transrectal prostate as the primary lesion was in the prostate then again at 16 and 24 months after diagnosis, all negative and have been well since and am working full time raising a family . I am still monitored yearly. I never had radical surgery or radiation, all my parts work. I'm now 48 , so the point is while the odds may be against you, and the docs are pessimistic, you never know. My main oncologist was Quinn at USC

Hi.  I am Mrs. Torris Hornsby.  My husband has urachal cancer and peritoneal carcinomatosis.  It was stage 4 when we found it and no particularly treatment plan.  We are now in research.  It has been 27 months since we found out.  I'm thinking maybe this is something similar - not sure.
