I just wanted to touch back on this thread - mainly for anyone that is going thru this because I know how stressed I was this past year with the uncertainty.
As stated before, on Oct 2 I had a cystoscopy with 5 biopsies and uterine washings
With a simple cystoscopy I had earlier in the year the recovery time was about 36 hours, but with this procedure I was still passing blood clots as late as November 17. It wasn't until late November that I can say I didn't feel any of the effects of the cystoscopy - not to say I was in pain but I could still feel restricted urine flow and pressure. I also had occasional flank pain - pain is a stretch but a noticeable sensation I assume is related to the kidneys and washings from the procedure
Anyway, my only reason for posting this is to just provide as much information as I can about my experience in the hopes that it helps answer questions for someone else down the road.
All is well at this point with a follow up urine sample in a few months
Hi there, I have been following your posts because my husband had a FISH test due to them finding a few atypical cells on his last urine cytology that accompanied his cysto on his yearly bladder cancer check up. His FISH came back negative, but I have done reading on the test and was prepared for him to have to do exactly what you had done had it come back positive.
That being said, as others have commented, the FISH test is known to have false positives. After all your biopsies and physical looking with scopes plus the CT scan being negative, I think you can be 99% certain the docs are not missing anything. Nothing (and I do mean nothing) in medicine is 100%, so, I would try to not waste much time worrying about the "what ifs". You got great news. Do your best to not dwell on it and enjoy your clean bill of urological health
