Well....best I can do right now is root beer here at gate E5 in the Dallas airport.
I will have beer to toast all of you once I get home to Colorado tonight.

Andy: you don't know HOW glad we are that you went to a major bladder cancer center also.
Breaks my heart sometimes when people don't or won't and then to hear about them running into major complications.

Here's a toast to Andy, his wife, doctors and nurses!
Congrats and Bravo to all!

Just got off the phone with Dr. Hafez at UM. My path report came back and all margins are good and lymph nodes are clear! So I guess it's ok to say CANCER FREE! I think I will have my first beer on that news. Can't thank everyone on the this enough for the advice and encouragement. I don't know if I would have gone to a cancer center if not for you folks. Life is good!

I do have to agree that beer isnt always the best chemo, for really agressive cancers you may have to resort to tequila

I'll drink to that also KC

I think I might drink to almost anything at this point!

However, I can attest to the fact that too much beer (or gin) can have the unintended consequence of having your neobladder relax to the point of complete release after you thought were completely continent. :blush:

Happened once to me when walking down the hall in my hotel. Luckily nobody was around and I was close to my room when it happened.

Only happened once, but....

Mike,

Could it be that you have discovered a cure for hypercontinence!!!!! Instead of cathing - a six pack of bud light!
