Scope was negative today. Watching and waiting on the stones!
I just wanted to close this loop in case anyone else is on the forum looking for answers and reading these stories.
I spent weeks reading through these posts. Just having this forum and reading all YOUR stories made a difference for me during these anxious weeks. I wish each of you caring people all the best on your journeys.
You guys are inspirational.

I almost never second/early guess as I have been wrong too many times BUT, I am betting with Sara that stones are likely. "Size and position" male sense.

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.

He said given the size and position of the stones, he believes they are source of my symptoms. He said he’d feel comfortable watching my urine and symptoms or I could go ahead with scope. I said scope, ASAP. He said absolutely, let’s do it. 
Thanks for the support. Hoping it’s just the stones but I know there could be more going on. Trying to take heart in the good news and keep investigating. Y’all are great…

The scope and scan are the 2 most standard dx tests. Your URO didn't want to do a scope? That would concern me? Let's hope it is nothing!
