Ok, were all still healing in one way or another! Yes some of us have treatments and we bitch about them, the fact is we go and do the treatments. Than what? Here's What! Go to a store like Vitiman World or GNC and get some good Immune System booster Vit. or herbs, tell the clerk to you want to build-up your immune system. As we grow older in life we need to keep up our immune systems as they were 20 years ago or close to it. Without a good immune system in your body, your body gets weak, and with B/C* you want a very high immune systems. Let your doctor know what your taking to help yourself, and I don't think he would dis-agree. Do what you have to do build that immune system UP. Lots of fresh air, excerize, and LIVE. Go for your treatments, get MRI's when needed do all of the above. And my friend you will live a long time, longer than you think. There's a big world out there, go get some of it.
Good luck to all,

I hear you. I think the next time I get a cysto I am going rid back on the Kidney/Bladder flush programs instead of the Antibiotics. All they do is make you weaker so how are you supposed to fight tumors that might return? The week after my tumor removal, I had air bubbles coming out when I urinated at times so I know my bladder really took a hit. I have already slowed down meat eating and will be begining a 30 day program to flush all my organs. I may be tumorless but I feel like crap and always feel sensitive down there now.
I don't know what's normal anymore. I'm wondering if this is coming from the
stricture removal?...I don't know...anyway, did your doc do a urinalysis or just hand out antibiotics? Have you tried cranberry juice or AZO Cranberry supplement? This seems to keep the good bugs in charge of the bad bugs in your bladder....try the cranberry and maybe green tea or bottled water to flush
yourself out. As a little Asian lady told me..."Flush, flush, flush..."

As I posted before, I had a papilloma removed about a month ago now. Since that time, I always feel a sensation like I have to go but not alot comes out. When I do go, I feel like I dont empty. I was getting better, but about 2 weeks ago I felt as If I got a major UTI. I went to the uro who gave me Cipro and I felt better but a week later, I still have some symptoms. Not major, it just makes me nervous because I need the cysto 4 times in the next year. I believe I may be retaining a little urine. Im not sure if its just senstive (I had a stricture removed at the end of my urethra the same day)
I guess Im a little nervous that Im not healing or growing a new tumor. Maybe removing a stricture, a bladder tumor and he also took samples from a few other places in the bladder is adding to a slow heal?
