My path normally took about 4 days. The last biopsy was on Friday and on Tuesday, I had the results.
I know this is scary, but hang in there. Please keep us posted as to what you find out.
The TURB is not too bad. Just keep talking to your doctor and asking questions.
Hang in there,

Dx January 2006
I've been very sick to my stomach for four months. It gets unbearable around 6pm every night. I had no other sypmtoms. Aug 24 I had an ultrasound and the report said sessile mass 2cm. I went to a urologist who did a cystoscope Sept 5th and found a tumor that he said looked solid and was on a stalk. He told my husband that is was cancer from the looks of it and scheduled surgery for Sept 11th. I've read and read and can't make sense of anything. How long after surgery does it take to get the path results? I know until it comes out and is graded and staged we know nothing. Could anyone tell me anythng that would fit all this together? I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much.
