Our appointment is set for this week to recieve biopsy and all other results, thank god for getting the appointment moved forward, can't wait for the waiting and unknown to be over!!
Is there any area on this website that suggests questions to ask at the appointment, also is there any area that gives an idea of what treatment is an option for each stage/grade etc...Would like to have an idea before going in to keep shock/upset/tears to a minimum and have right questions ready!!!
My dad had Turb on Tues, went ok, doc thinks he got it all, it was pretty big though, about ¼ size of his bladder, does this seem abnormally big or does size matter?
My dad will be in hospital until Saturday which surprised me seen as according to a lot of posts on this site, a lot of people are out on the same day! He was pretty sick and sore Tues and Wednesday and even today, his catheter kept clotting and this caused a lot of discomfort, it blocked so many times that they had to remove it this morning! Suppose no man expects tubes to be sticking out of his manly bits for too long LOL...
I spoke to the doc after the operation, very nice man, I’ve dealt with a lot of docs and he certainly was one of the nicest, he answered all my questions (as best he could at this early stage!) and there was no time pressure or anything, I was very impressed that he recognises we're people and not just a number, I think he thought I was a bit mental with my A4 sheet of questions, its a running joke in my family now
He said he couldn’t answer what stage etc it was but that there was a 30% chance it had some sort of invasion What does this mean, I suppose I should see the positive side, its 70% it’ll be fine but obviously I'm worried sick! AM I being naïve, could the growth still be benign??
