YAY mostly

Hi Tahoe,

I am glad to hear you feel better, yet at the same time I am somewhat concerned. My personal understanding is that all T1 diagnosis require a 2nd TUR - under and over staging is likely on a T1. Also a T1 cannot be "stage 2" - T and stage are interchangable terms - maybe it is the grade? But the pathology states it is grade 1? I also am confused of the addressing of node status- they don't remove lymphnodes on a TUR. They usually do a CT scan with a bladder cancer dx, but that is not conclusive in itself and needs biopsy or removal to confirm. I truly want for you to be carefree and cancer free - I would get a copy of the path report to clarify these things if it were me. Personally, I would be sure the specimen included deep muscle. And I would get a 2nd opinion before getting BCG for a T2 or accepting it is a T1 without a 2nd TUR in a few weeks. Just trying to help :)
God Bless, Holly

Are you saying you have a Stage 1 or 2 hard to tell the way you wrote it, and also in Invasive Category I have pictures of the stages the posted. Keep those 3 month follow ups. Joe ;)

Whew! Thank goodness I have low grade from what I read. I would prefer to keep my bladder if possible, wouldn't you? Sounds like this is possible to me from what I read here. Gotta be prepared to keep a constant eye on it though.

But then , I am going by what my guy says anyway, He seems sincere about keeping me cancer free :) Plus , I will be having plenty of follow up maintenance.

Good article , thanks for finding it for me :-*

Well, he explained it to me this way.

There is the inner lining of the bladder, then there is the next layer then muscle , etc. Some abnormal cells in the second layer (guess a pic would be good here)

Basically , what it boiled down to is a T1(tumor invades subepithelial connective tissue, Stage 2, Grade 1- tumors with limited abnormalities , no spread (MO), and No cancer in lymph nodes (NO).

P.S. So nice to pee in the toilet again ,heehee
