About the TU RB to remove too small papillary lesions regarding the procedure?

Yes and yes. 30 minutes is probably an average for 2 small papillary tumors and with them being small it is unlikely to have you leave with a catheter. An epidural is a spinal block where you are awake and from what I have read is can be done but, most of these are given as a general anesthesia knockout. You will read under my profile I had a papillary tumor and sometimes a second is done IF there are questions on the grade or margins taken. You will do fine!

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

I have two papillary lesions on my bladder. The doctor is going to perform a TURB in 40 days. When he looked at them on the scope he said he wasn't very concerned about them. I was told the operation wouldn't take very long maybe 30 minutes. It's not usual from start to finish for something like that? Plus another urologist I saw earlier send it was unlikely I would have a Catheter after the Surgery? And the last thing that I was wondering for procedure like I'm supposed to have could I get an epidural Anastasia. Because I heard but they often feel it's better to put you right out. Does anyone have any knowledge or can comment on what I've written about. Thank you
