had my ureterscopy

10 years 2 months ago #28716 by wsilberstein
Dear David:
At one point my urologist was considering taking a closer look at my ureters because of some abnormality of the orifice. He had wanted to a retrograde pyelogram, a test where x-rays are taken of the kidneys and ureters after putting a dye directly into the ureter. It can be done at the time of a cystoscopy. My urologist said it has to be done under anesthesia because it will cause spasms, I think of the ureters. I never ended up having the test, but you might ask about it.

Suzy: Fish test is a test for markers for bladder cancer which can be done on the same type of specimen as your regular cytology. Ask your urologist if he has done one.
David: Haven't seen you for a long time. Overall, how are you doing?

Suzy,

I am David and I've had a bunch (6) of TURBT's and one instance of CIS several years ago. I've been clear of CIS or Papillary tumors for a couple of years but have had several positive FISH tests -- but all cytology has been negative. The doc has speculated that the problem could be "upstream", i.e.: the ureters. You had said you had a scan that was inconclusive. Had you had any FISH tests that were positive?
