Hi friends --

Fantastic news! Just back from the doctor after the first follow-up cystoscopy:

Bladder is clean. No signs of a recurring tumor.

Thanks for your support everyone!

Critical? Probably not. Important, you bet. Good that you are back at it. Don't remember if he was high grade or low. Both situations need monitoring.

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.

Hi friends --

Richard here. I was active here a couple of months ago when my dad was diagnosed with a non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. Luckily after two TURBTs he was cured (so to say -- cancer was no longer detected in cells.)

https://bladdercancersupport.org/forum/8-non-invasive-superficial-bladder-cancer-questions-and-comments/46033-my-dad-is-cured.html

We went on a trip around the world with my dad to celebrate this and we missed the 3 month follow-up. It was in late July but we only now got back from the trip. I called the hospital and scheduled one in two weeks. We're about 1.5 months late.

I'm worried. Is this critical that we missed the follow up? Is a 4-5 month follow up still acceptable?

I'll keep you updated about how it goes at the first follow up and try not to miss the second follow up.

Rich
