    My Father-In-Law was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer on Saturday. Age 72 and won't have the surgery because he's too weak and wouldn't survive the radiation. The countdown has now begun.

    Happy Holidays. :eek:

    it's very curable. At his young age you can build his strength up. Radiation is not nearly as draining as chemo---GET A SECOND OPINION

    is he on dialysis? If not then it's reversible. His diabetes can be controlled by diet. I just went through this shit with my brother---72 is young. I still say get the 2nd opinion.

    Also start him on a low protein diet--it reduces the waste in the system and helps the kidneys rebound, also low carb for the cancer and diabetes
