Bill..i'm assuming your first TURB was under anesthesia so that enough muscle tissue could be taken for accurate pathology?..........Pat

SNIP AND ZAP.... At both of my last 2 Cystos my Uro did 2 "SNIP AND ZAPS".. although they are a little uncomfortable they are certainly nothing to be afraid of. :o I have had many skin cancers removed and I think the needle with the pain killer in it is a worse pain than the "snip"... And I am happy to have the Uro do it just to confirm what's there. Happily they have all been benign... whew!!!! ;D

Connie,

I like reading your posts, we have very much in common... I too am divorced and do these appointments alone (although I still have a very healthy 73 yr old Mom who lives 10 miles away and worries about me.. :D). And I HAD heard of in-office biopsies and fulguration, so I'm glad to hear from you and others.

I have made up my mind to trust my uro UNLESS my pathology is questionable. The first one two years ago was clearly non-invasive and low-grade. If this second one reads worse, I will find an oncologist, I believe. I don't know if I'll have to fight my HMO or not (they have been GREAT so far, I haven't paid a dime for any of my procedures)...

Sometimes, a little physical pain takes your mind off emotional pain, and puts things back in balance, making you appreciate every day you wake up NOT in pain. Or every day you wake up, period, is better than the alternative! 8)

I think it is so helpful for us to be able to come here and help to educate each other. Thanks to all for sharing their experiences on this issue of Office TURBS....
