Hi Sarah, I will do more than think good thoughts, I will keep you in my prayers. I like your outlook of getting on with living. Thats what all this is about, LIVING !!! I'm getting a turb done on Thru because my tumors are back, so today I went hiking in a new spot I have never been to before. I found a forest of huge pine trees, we have snow on the ground and it was so peaceful I just let everything go and soaked it all in. Heres for praying your results come back negative and you sail on to living !! Rocky
Am relatively new to this topic. Had what I thought was recurrent UTI's last year and during my gyn exam the gal said that anyone with more than 2 a year needed to see a urologist. He looked in the bladder, found an ulcer, said it needed a biopsy. That was done under anesthesia Jan. 12. Result: papillary transitional etc.etc... early. However, there was LOTS of inflammation all over the bladder and samples of that tissue came back equivacol so we are doing the whole #@$%^#@ thing again on Monday. Please keep good thoughts that these new biopsy samples are NEGATIVE so that I can adjust to what I have and go on with living,.
