5 Year Check!

7 years 5 months ago #42768 by Joey
Nancy my 5 year is December, but I had that whole issue on the recurrence, did it come back or not during my initial follow up in May 2008. The cytology and fish were negative and two pathologists said clean. second opinion said focal CIS. The urologist at the time went back in for larger sample, cytology negative, hospital pathology said no cancer, send back to same pathologist who saw CIS and confirmed again in the second sample. But the good news I have been clear since.

Nancy--

That is such wonderful news! Much as you may like your urologist, I'm sure you'll be more than happy to see him/her only once a year. I've been following a somewhat similar schedule to yours, though my recurrence was low grade papillary tumors, and I hope to join you in the "5-year club" next May.

Joey,
Yes, the doctor said once a year. I did say I would be happy to stay on 6 month checks,(because I am such a "nervous Nancy":) but Uro said one year would be good. After six years of this it seems odd to be on the "once a year" check. I will get used to it, because I was use to the 6 month check.
Your 5 year is near, isn't it?

Nancy, great news. I know you had a follow up in August.

Will you now be going for checkups once a year?
