What Im trying to find out its what caused the clots. Each time there were about 15-2o of them. The last flt like I was passing solid thru my urethra. There is nopain involced either time and the urine was tinged for a day or so.
How did the cancer cause the clots? And why didnt they happen all the time until I was cleaned out? It would seem if the tumor caused it they would contine till removed. Im just happe I saw them. I could have missed it as it was so uneventful/
I had my annual physical 2/2008. No microscopic hematuria found in urinalysis. Gross (visible blood & clots) hematuria about 4/25/2008 and I ran to family doc again. He put me on cipro for an infection which was killed but, the follow up urinalysis still showed microscopic hematuria. That ssnt me down this path 1 week later with the URO & CT scan. That's why ANY blood, visible or not needs to be checked. Britt, I trust yours was caught early enough!
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.
I was wondering about the manifestation of these symptoms. They were thhe root cause of my cysto that identified the cancer.
What causes these to happen? Also since I was runnunig around with the cancer undiagnosed for a year whay did it only ha[[en twice? If it is caused by irritation of the bladder wall why wouldnt they occur more often?
