Re: Could it be they come back and say, do nothing else, it is ok, just have it checked often?
That's my protocol. Doc takes a look every 3 months to see if there's any recurrence. I had a second TURB because he saw something at second cystoscopy. Pathology said it was cystitis cystica, an inflammatory condition that, apparently, can look tumorous. Best, Stu

8/18 TURBT, papillary urothelial carcinoma, T1 LG
12/18 TURB, benign urothelial mucosa, focal features consistent with cystitis cystica
Hello. This is where I am. WednssdY March 27, a few days ago. I just had the resection surgery to remove the tumors. I am awaiting pathology reports as to where to go from here. Could it be they come back and say, do nothing else, it is ok, just have it checked often? I am a 65 year old female.
I studied before I made my decision.
When I get my second pathology report back
Will tell the tale.
For me, the idea of having my bladder removed is NOT an option.
Meanwhile, my relationship with Jesus has become paramount.
Repenting my sins has taken on a new level.
The only way to The Father is through Jesus.
Thank you for your insight.
It is very much appreciated.
Warrior, Welcome to our community. It sounds like you should know exactly what you are dealing with soon waiting is hard I know. As with any type of alternative treatment never do so without your medical teams knowlege it can have unexpected results. I am including an article on Colloidal Silver. Bladder cancer can be a lot of different types, grades and stages. Comparing your situation to someone else’s is apples and oranges. Added to that is the fact that a smallish community of people with non invasive disease may never have a reassurance perhaps even without treatment, while others progress. Remember if your badder cancer is non invasive the job is to keep it that way even if it does return, if it is invasive it is to keep it from spreading. There are treatment options that have allowed the vast majority of us to live normal lives. Alternative treatment offering appropriate diet, exercise and relaxation are always a good idea but only after an OK from your medical team.
Keep us updated please.
