Went in today at 6:30 AM and was home by noon. I have an appoinment with the uro on Friday the first for results. I did find out I have prostate cancer found out my PSA went to 8 from 5.3 in 2 months but did not ask for Gleason.
I am feeling realy good and very happy to come home. I do have the cath and even that is not so bad.
Thanks for all your support and help thru this anxious time.

Glad the TURB went went OK and you're doing well. If you have any problems with the catheter hose, but KY jelly on the hose. For people who still have a prostate, this can be helpful when going to sleep. Natural erections while sleeping can be painful if there isn't any lubrication on the hose.

So sorry to hear about the prostate cancer. Hope your pathology comes back with better news on the bladder cancer. Who heck needs two cancers at once?
