Too many Questions - Too few answers

10 years 9 months ago #29596 by icequeen3412
I am 36 yr old, nonsmoking female. At beginning of December, Drs first thought UTI then thought I had stones - went in to look on New Years (ended up doing biopsy). They scheduled (TURB) surgery for the next week. I won't have pathology results for almost 2 weeks! Dr thinks that he got all of it.

Q1- If he got all of it from pathology reports - Do you think I should Strongly request radiation, immunology, or some other treatment to ensure it stays gone for longer? If there are still cells, then Dr will have to go in again and it will be loads more questions.

Q2- Given that I had cervical cancer last year (though GYN said hysterectomy removed all the cells and only stage 1), do you suggest seeing Oncologist for second opinion?

Q3- I am having horrible bladder spasms. Dr says that these may continue, but will lessen even after I recover. Is this normal?

Q4- I am looking forward to finding out my pathology results so I can better understand what I am up against. Is it normal for pathology results to take so long?

I really appreciate any support you can offer.

Thinking positive in 2010.
