Anita,
it took about 10 minutes. No cancer but lots of imflamation and some expanded blood vessels from my previous radiation. Still says we will watch it because immfimation is also a cause of BC but will only need to do yearly cystos for now.

I enjoyed talking with you too! Best of luck to your husband.

I hope you don't belong here, the not knowing is the worst part. As an ex smoker I know how hard it is to quit, drink a lot of water and breath deep. You can do it. Best of luck with your tests. I was diagnosed with bladder cancer 13 years after quitting smoking, smoked for 25 years on and off. My brother{who was diagnosed with BC 5 years ago} and I used to wash our hands with gasoline after working on cars, maybe that was the cause. Also swallowed some a couple times after siphoning some gas. Couldn't be a good thing. Best of luck. BTW had my six month checkup today after radical cystectomy and all is clear, halleluia. Best of luck.

Ruth Ann,
Glad to hear your good news. It was nice chatting with you last night. Hope your doctor can get your bladder to calm down soon.
Anita

PS -- how long would you say the scope took and did you get to see your bladder on the TV thing?

So happy to hear you did not get a BC diagnosis. Now you have a name to put with the source of your pain and can focus on getting well!

Best of luck...

Best wishes... Catherine
