What is the game plan? If the Urologist you are dealing with is taking a wait and see approach it might be time for a second opinion.

Ont thing we were told is FISH had lots of false positives. Could that be possible? What are they saying your next step is? I feel your worry and am sorry this is causing anxiety:(

well the results came back from my second test and they were worse than the first one.

from a 5% to 7%.

Doctor is concerned that it might be outside the bladder.

I'm going to have alot of sleepless nights

Hi there, i am no FISH test expert, except that my hubby just had one done as well. From what we learned there are quite a few false positives. I am sure this is why they are having you repeat the test. Even if the second is borderline, i'm not sure that definitely preficts an "event" down the road. These are questions your doc can answer.

Glad your cysto was clean! Best of luck to you :)
