thank you pat for the quick reply. it is amazing what we have to pay a dr. these days just so we can educate ourselves as to what might really be happening to us. thak god for this site and all the caring people like yourself.
Joeman..one thing i would definately do is send your slides to Johns Hopkins for a second opinion on pathology. They're one of the best and will know if there was enough taken for proper staging.
I kind of get the feeling your uro doesn't see much bladder cancer. Ta low grade usually is just a watch and wait protocol. BCG is not effective with low grade. And its pretty much common place to do a re-Turb at about the 6 week mark after the first just to make sure all margins are clean and no seeding has taken place.
You might want to seek a second opinion??? If you need help navigating that just let me know.
two tumers, both quite small. i will definatly get a copy this coming week. i'm beginning to to think i need to research the dr. more than the disease . at any rate, thanks for responding.
