So, next week I'm going into to surgery to have my bladder removed. I'll go under anesthesia with a relatively intact body and wake up with pee coming out of a hole in my belly. I think that this is one of the strange things about cancer therapy in general. As a cancer patient, you let doctors do horrible things to you when you are feeling relatively well in complete reliance on the expert's assertion that, if you don't, you will get sick in the future.

Well, it's only a scam if they are wrong. But it involves a leap of faith--probably a bigger one than the witch doctor's patients make--they probably wait until they feel bad to go see him.
