Thank you so much for your response I'm sorry to hear that you also are dealing with the same. I hope that all comes out well for you. Yes there is a procedure scheduled on 6-17-2016 and we will have more information after the pathobiology report to get back. It's very difficult to relax and take a breath my wife and I both have trouble just getting through the day without thinking about it all day. All indications are that it was caught very early that does help with the prognosis as I understand. Thank you again for sharing we can use all the encouragement we can get.
Lupenbill, I'm sorry that you are going through this. I was in your shoes about a year ago, so I know exactly how you feel. It's much easier said than done, but try to relax - and remember to breathe.
I'm going to assume that your doctor has scheduled you for a TURBT to remove the growth and send it out for pathology to determine exactly what you are dealing with. Once that's done, you and your doctor(s) can determine the correct treatment plan for you.
Keep us posted on your progress and please feel free to ask questions. There is a wealth of knowledge and support available from the members at this site.
