concerned for MIL

10 years 6 months ago #17944 by sandrak
You know, I thought the same thing when she told me this is where she went. I hope they know what they are doing, but I am a little concerned about the situation. I think she should go for a second opinion. I will suggest this to her the next time I talk with her. Thanks.

Wow. That is alot of reasons for the blood. Thanks for the info. The doctor did say that she could have a tumor so small that he can't see it yet. If this is the case, how fast do these things grow? She goes back in 3 months. Yesterday she did tell me that if she has anymore bleeding she will go back to her regular doctor sooner.
Just for the info. This is the urologist she went to. www.carolinaurology.com
She really liked them, but maybe she should get a second opinion.

Yesterday she had the cystoscopy. The doctor did give her the results from the CT scan and the cystoscopy. They said everything looked good and normal, and they weren't sure where the bleeding was coming from. They told her maybe it was a blood vessel bursting. Would this happen numerous times? They also said there is a possibility there is a small tumor that they couldn't see. Does all this seem right?
She is to go back in 3 months for another cystoscopy.

I talked with my MIL a little while ago and she is very upbeat. She seriously thinks there is nothing wrong with her. She thinks maybe she has bladder stones, which is possible I guess. But her appoinment is in 4 hours, so please say a prayer for her. I will update when I hear something.
