Steve,

Mine did a complete abdomen CT Scan, so extra tests are normal protocol. I would hazard a guess this is T1 there is no other involvement.

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

Steve.
This is normal. He is just covering all the bases. The scope can only see in side the bladder, it can not see in the tubes going from the kidneys to the bladder. Were a tumor could pop up.
My doc. did the same thing to me. hang in there, you will be fine!

After my 2nd TURBT on 5/25 the doctor has ordered a renal ultrasound. Is this normal?

I received a letter in the mail from his office when I arrived home last night and the office hasn't called me back yet today. Just wondering if anyone here has had this done and if so is it standard?

Thanks in advance...
