Sherre....don't know what the pa-1 is? The pathology report should have grade and looks like you're saying its T1...but double check that. Don't know why the blood again but i'd sure let your uro know.
No chemo agents should be given while there is still blood in the urine.
Has he had a CT scan?
Have you been able to get a second opinion and will insurance allow...they should. And its always a good idea to go to a major cancer center or university center that deals with bladder cancer on a regular basis. We can help with that if you'll tell us where you are.
Not a good idea to take laxatives on a daily basis....your body will start to rely on them. Better to go the prune route and fiber route if you can.

okay after Turb my husband had a stent placed at the opening of the ureter because one of his tumors was blocking it. He has stones on that side also. He is now having the feeling that he is stopped up and taking laxatives daily. He has blood in his urine once again and terrible pain in his back. he will start mytomyicin c sept 3 because of insurance reasons. he was non invasive but aggressive, i think it said tpa1. Can anyone tell me if they had these problems also. He is scheduled to have the stent removed monday august 3.
