JamesF,

Thanks for the updates. We all gain knowledge from each and every post and glad that scare is past. Especially for us that have been under the knife, the anesthesiologist is super important now that your wife appears to have a sensitivity to some of those drugs. Only upward and onward from here we trust!

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.

Eight hour RC completed today. Everything went as smooth as possible during surgery. The doctor stated he did not see any sign of the cancer outside of the bladder and expects the pathology will corroborate. Since it is plasmacytoid we will wait anxiously on the pathology, but for now will be positive and work on recovery.

I should mention there was one small hiccup after surgery. While in PACU she had been given a pain and nausea cocktail that knocked her out and then taken to her room. When she reached her room she could not be revived. Her breathing was down to four breaths a minute. A lot of commotion and a tense half an hour later they were able to revive her with NARCAN. Apparently she is very sensitive to the aforementioned cocktail. Pretty scary.

Update.

All preliminaries done. RC will be later this week. Surgery is expected to be 10-12 hours, with possibly a week stay in hospital. Will report back after surgery as I am sure I will have questions.

Thanks

Had hoped for you the chemo would do more; likely it has acted to help contain the cancer and reduce the risk of spread as a pre RC treatment. The micropapillary variety requires the experience of a major place such as MDA.

Wishing you and your wife well,

Update.

My wife had another cystoscopy and the urologist has determined that she is still a candidate for a RC. It is scheduled in several weeks.
