(Hi all! I'm posting this for a fellow warrior by the name of Liz.

I feel a little lost here to. Once we get the hang of this it's going to be great!) Rosemary
I was diagnosed in March of 2003, I had two bladder tumors, they were removed and I am closely checked. In Nov of 2007 ,I had my first reoccurance, so they did some plucking method to remove what was there. It was a malgn tumor again, so now I am back to every 3 months for cysto's.
This coming monday I have my cysto and also the have to do the retrogade xrays(where they put stints in and then the dye, not looking forward to this. Because the one time I had it done before, it was lots of backache. I am hoping that it will go easy!!!
I do considered my self lucky almost 5 yrs and no signs of a tumor(my dr said expect this to come back) They jsut keep checking me closely. the cysto's are starting to get to me, so my Dr gave me something to relax with, I haven't had the chance to use it yet, becase of my new circumstance.
Can anyone shed some light on any of this please.
