Best wishes for Tuesday, Paula. I hope your doctor calls tomorrow to talk about your scan. It is difficult to wait for that phone call. Sending you positive thoughts for good results on your scan and your TURB.

Best wishes... Catherine

I had TURB for low grade transitional cell papillary tumor in Jan. It was same day procedure, felt like urinating all the time when foley catheter was in, took Tramadol every 6hours & had family cook & wait on me. Much better when catheter was removed by me at home 48hours later. Returned to work in 7 days, cimbed stairs, no problem. Good luck.

I just want to thank everyone for your information on my upcoming TURB. I wish I had more information, I have left two messages for my Doctor, for I like to know the results of my CT scan, plus I have some questions, no return calls..I suppose he is busy and will see me on Tues when I go in. My procdure is not being done till 2;30 pm. long time to wait. I was told I could drink 1 glass of apple juice or water up to 6;30am day of operation so I will not be deyhradrated/...Anxious yes, But I feel lucky to have found this site. Thank you to all, after Tues I am sure I will have more questions... :huh:
