Hi again this is tgrocky,
I had my second TURBT done on February 21st and on the 25th I went to my surgeon and discussed the pathology report and it was confirmed that I have Stage 1 High Grade Bladder Cancer with CIS and he told me that he got the rest of my cancerous tumor out and I said great some I am cancer free right now and he said I did not say that you have CIS which is flat like cancer cells throughout on the wall of your bladder.
He is really thinks I should go with the Neo-Bladder as he says it's my best survival rate, as says that doing the BCG treatments along with the maintence treatments he says it is less then 50% that it will work.
To me they both have pros and cons, however I am leaning towards the BCG treatments as I was told that if it does not work orif the cancer comes back I can still go with the Neo-Bladder although he says my survival rate will be less which I understand the wording but not 100% what does he mean?
So tomorrow (March 18th, 2019 at 1:00pm EST) I have an appointment with my surgeon to hopefully give him my decision and to be quite honest I am scared and I think both options are not that super great to do. Bear in mind I leave alone and have NO family and my two best friends live 3,000 miles away and my two other friends do not really live near by also.
So matter what I decide I will be going through it alone which will make it VERY hard tp do.
Any views on which option I should take.?
