About Me: Female, 57, VALRICO, FL, member since Feb 2011
I am a 52 yr old female that has been fighting Bladder Cancer since I was 37 yr old. I still have my bladder despite very frequent reoccurances. I have just quit smoking with the help of the drug Chantix. My last Cysto was clear for the first time in over 5 years. N
[More]ot sure what this one will be... I kinda cheated with the smoking. I recently tried a statin drug for the 2nd time and within 3 weeks my creatine kinase total serum was high; 581. I had horrible leg cramps so the doctor tested me for this problem. I pray it hasn't damaged my kidneys in light of the bladder cancer. I also have COPD and high blood pressure. Probably all of this stems from starting smoking when I was 13 yr old. Not too smart.
