Celeste,

Glad your surgery is behind you and that the BC is non-invasive. The 3 month check ups are most important.

Celeste, it IS good news for now. However, remember that one of the major issues with bladder cancer is that is tends to return. That is why the 3 month checkups are so critical. Please do everything you can to have these done. It is very important.

Celeste... I am so happy to hear that your bc is non-invasive and that your doctors feel confident that they got everything. I am very sorry you are having all your other medical difficulties. Having fibro adds another layer of difficulty onto many situations... I know because I have it too. Take care and I do hope you can work things out to get your 3-month followup. It is so important to stay ahead of any recurrence.

Best wishes...
Catherine

Just reporting in on this. Surgery done, it was non-invasive, low grade and the dr got it all. He will be checking it again in 3 months, that is if I can manage to come up with over $500 before then. I have no insurance and we live on 1360 a month with no additional aids. Well my husband has VA medical, but does nothing for me. Oh well. The urologist and anesthesiologist got on my case a bit about my teeth. They are beyond bad. I got an exam and consult for free on them and was told I need to go to an oral surgeon. I called around and came up with another place which is cheaper for dentures and removals. Still it will amount to somewhere in the range of $1000. They may have to wait another 4 to 6 months on that. Money sure is scarce and everything is getting more expensive. Anyway, I'm good for now.
