Your bladder is the hollow, muscular organ in your lower belly where urine is stored. When you urinate, the muscles of your bladder contract and push urine out through a tube called the urethra. Bladder cancer starts when cells in the bladder start to grow out of control. These cells can form into a bladder tumor. They can also spread outside your bladder to lymph nodes and to structures far from the bladder, like your bones, lungs or liver. This is known as metastasis.

When I learned I needed open heart surgery, my fear level was off the chart. Not being from this area, all I had to go by was word of mouth, or reference from Dr.s I was not at all familiar with. When a neighbor said Dr. Johnson had done her surgery, and how Wonderful he was, I started feeling a 'little' better about the situation. Then I went for my consultation with him. When he came in the room & introduced himself, I had an amazing feeling of comfort come over me. He showed a video of my heart cath, & using a model of a heat explained everything he would be doing. It was obvious he was knowledgeable concerning this procedure, and intent on doing his ultimate best to get me back to 'life' again. I went and had the surgery. When I awoke, the staff was extremely attentive to my needs. Dr. Johnson was also there saying to me I came out of the anesthesia and woke from surgery superbly. Giving me a feeling of, "Yes!, I Made it!, & I Will be Fine!". I saw him at least twice a day!, along with his other staff members who attended the surgery. I was amazed that he was spending so much time there in the ICU unit, seeing to & tending to his patients. He genuinely cared about my personal well being, & how I was feeling and doing everyday that I was in the hospital. If it were not for him, & the comfort I felt after meeting him to begin with, I honestly do not think I would have gone through with the surgery. He saved my life!, for which I extend the Greatest amount of Gratitude I have ever given a Dr!
