Cramp & Pressure after Transuretheral Resection

Hello Wendy,
I hadn't realized that I received an answer on this questions and I came only across your answer a couple of days ago. It is just the stress I guess.
Thank you for your reply, and for doing such a great job. There are just not enough words to describe the help this website and all its participants has to offer. :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :D ;D
Thanks again,
Renee

My husband went in hospital Jan. 25 to have a tumor removed. Everything went fine, except for occasional bleeding and cramp after urinating. However, he is still complaining about pressure in the lower bowels and cramping. It seems that this last week it is more constant. He was told a week ago the results of the pathologist which states an aggressive cancer. It had grown in the mussel layer. He is scheduled for a CT scan Feb.28. I am worried about the pressure, cramp. Is this normal so long after TUR? How quickly can this cancer spread?
Thanks for your help.

Hi Renee,

I've definitely heard folks complaining of symptoms for weeks after a TUR (transurethral resection), it could be that there were deep biopsies done that take a while to heal. Clots show up after a while and can be painful, produce scary looking urine. Just be alert for fever or signs of infection. As for your other question, the rule of thumb is not to let more than 3 months pass between diagnosis and definitive treatment for a muscle invasive tumor. It takes many years for a tumor to become large enough to cause symptoms and won't grow a whole lot during the period between diagnosis and treatment, but to be safe that 3 month limit is advised in the AUA guidelines.

Take care,
Wendy
