I did 3 monthly for 2 years, 4 monthly for 8 months and now 6 monthly. I know how you feel, I am now just a bit scared that the time lag could be a bit too long. My next cysto is middle of this month, so will post too with my results,
When I had my last cysto he said everything looked clean and that he was going to stretch it out a little and that I should schedule the next one for four months. When I called in to schedule they told me that he had noted that it should be six months but that they would check. They then confirmed that, yes, six months.
I asked about the pathology results last year and he said low grade and the stage was no more than 1 sounding like it was stage 0.
As you can tell I am at the top of the cycle now on this emotional roller coaster that we all seem to report. The discomfort of the scope is not that bad, it is the results that make me nervous.
I have never read where you go to 6 month cystos after 1 year all clear. I have read after 2 years and 3 years move to 6 month cystos. Then to 1 per year cysto after 5 years all clear.
I had TA low grade and will not be moved to 6 month cystos until all clear for 3 years.
