Yes that is normal for the urgency and mad dash. Always be sure to keep the urologist aware though.

We sure do. We have Marley who is 14, he's blind and deaf but healthy and handsome!!! (My baby). Abbygail who is 12 (both are black/white) and Ginger 8 who was my mother's dog and she couldn't deal with potty training so we took her. Love our babies.

The CT scan showed no other cancers - "no signs of metastatic disease". That is a huge worry lifted.

The urgency is still there. Toby has a notepad in the bathroom to see how frequently he's getting up during the night. Seems like 2 hrs is the longest stretch of sleep. Then it's a mad dash. Is that normal?

On a lighter note... I've been wanting to ask this since I first saw your screen name. Do you have a Shih Tzu? (Coming from a Lhasa Mom).

Best wishes... Catherine

Yes, I think that a CT scan is SOP when a diagnosis of bladder cancer is made. I had one at diagnosis, one after two years(I think), and will have one next year at the five year mark.

Urinary urgency sort of comes along with this stuff. Your bladder is YELLING at you..."you did WHAT to me?"
It will get better, and your uro can give you meds to help a bit.

Keep up the good work!

Toby and Kathy, I remember after my first surgery for removal of my tumor 4 cm, it always seemed I was going to the bathroom and yes urgency was a big issue. It all got back close to normal however I still think I go often, but I drink a lot of green tea.
