Glad it went well. Keeping fingers crossed on the pathology.
Your doc should be scheduling you for a second one in about 8 weeks or so. It's important that the pathology report shows clear margins around tumor. That is, good, clean, clear tissue around the entire thing. If not, the 2nd TURBT is pretty much mandatory.
Hello Jim...Glad to hear the procedure went smoothly and your cath will come out Monday.
I had to use my little iPod app to convert, and 1.4 cm is about 1/2 an inch. I would think that is in the fairly early stage which is a good thing, with the second even smaller. In spite of the circumstances of waiting for the path report, I'm sure you feel better just knowing they are out of your body.
We will be waiting with you! Best wishes...
Best wishes... Catherine
