I am so sorry to hear about your boyfriend. Bladder cancer does tend to reoccur, that is why follow up scopes are so important. Each individual is different when it comes to what they need as far as emotional support. And don't forget that you will need support too. Learn as much as you can without googling too much. This is a great forum. I am happy you found it.

My boyfriend, the father of our 2 little boys (ages 8 and 4), was diagnosed in late Oct. we thought it was kidney stones. They saw a few small spots and scheduled a TURBT. They removed 10-14 large tumors and declared him all clear (was confirmed with Roswell). He just went back for his first scope and it's back :(. They say they saw 2-3 small spots again. It's in a different spot higher up in the bladder like it's moving towards the kidneys (scary). Now he's going to have another TURBT in a couple of weeks. He doesn't do well with the catheter (it's very uncomfortable/painful for him) as well as getting scoped (they have to put him under anesthesia). His doctor feels like he isn't a good candidate for the medicine to prevent it from coming back since he has so much trouble with the catheter. He is 36 and has the bladder of a 76 year old. I feel so stressed!!! I want to help him through this but I'm unsure of what exactly I can do... Any advice would help. Thanks!
