I am certain you will do well-one day and treatment at a time. You should look forward to the end where you will be answering other peoples posts "been there and done that"!

Well it looks like Birmingham for me from now on.This center has 28 UROs in it and sevsral hospitals they work in.The Dr there wants me to have a contrast ct and he will put me to sleep and check my bladder for more cancer.He said he would start my BCG about 3 weeks after all this.Heres to cancer clinics and centers.They see so much of this kind of cancer everyday.Thanks to all and everyone get well.Love you all.

Kent, that may explain it!!! Since you are a member of a doctor's family, your uro is leaning over backward! And the ultrasound does not have a radiation load like CT''s do, so it is very safe.

A second opinion is ALWAYS a good idea; as you may have gathered from reading other threads in this forum, "get a second opinion" is the second commandment here. The best that will happen is that is will confirm that your current uro is doing everything right!
