Sandra...don't let lack of symptoms or feeling great deter her from getting that cystoscopy. I never had any pain of any kind and mine was already invasive by the time I was examined. The doctor if he's any good at all should be able to see any visible tumors at the time of cystoscopy and should be able to tell her on the spot what he sees. The illusive CIS tumors are flat..they can hide...sometimes are not detected by the naked eye as we don't use the Hexvix light here in the US except at one place which is using it in trial.
Well sandrak as I said I think they should of done the cystoscopy first but now the tests are being done so it's hard waiting but that's what you have to do. So until then focus positive and keep your mind busy and when you get the results the you will have an idea of where you stand. Joe
I just remembered something that has been happening with my MIL. Every once in a while when she moves a certain way or sometimes sneezes she gets a muscle spasm in her pelvic area. Could this be related to BC? Thanks again.
I have a couple of questions about my MIL symptoms. I don't know if she has bladder cancer yet. Haven't gotten results from CT scan. Her symptoms come and go. For the last few days she has felt great. No visible blood and she hasn't complained about any pains or pressure. If she has BC, would she be having some symptoms everyday, or would they come and go? She keeps saying since she hasn't had any symptoms for the last few days that she thinks what ever was going on with her is now gone. Tomorrow she goes in for the cystoscopy. I know she won't find out the results from that at that time. I just hope that if something is found her doctors won't wait until next week to let her know.
I am sorry for all the questions and I thank you all for being patient with me. This is all new and confusing for us.
