Whew....well it really depends on what was on the slide. I know the slides i brought to MSK were not adequate for evaluation which is why i was scheduled for a second TURB to go back a resect the original tumor......do you know if the ORIGINAL tumor was resected? Pat

Rosemary,we have not seen the conflicting report, although we have requested it today probably get it next week when the offices are open. we were told by the second surgen that he saw no cancer in the muscle wall. so thats where we stand on one hand I would like to go with good report and just be happy, but Id like to be more sure. thanks

How is the second path worded? Does it say "No muscular proparis present"?

That's how mine was worded......

Rosemary, no the second turb found no cancer in the muscle. The first lab that saw muscle invasive tumor was done with the specimen from the tumor of,my first turb. the conflicting report was done from a slide, could this fact effect the pathologists findings slide versis specimen? thank you sodacat

Very confusing.......because initially you stated that there were multiple tumors and first doc did not get them all...but what he did get showed invasion. Second uro....may have removed different tumors that were not invasive.....what about the intitial tumor? I don't know i would really question this. Is there enough of a specimen from the first TURB to send to someone like Johns Hopkins or MSK? Pat
