Had my cyto exam on Thursday and everything looked good. Waiting for cytology this week.
One more 3 month exam then 6 month follow ups.
Of interest is that my Dr. wants me to get a MRI next time before the 6 months starts. I ask if he had any concerns and he said none just that he can only see inside the bladder which he is please with and just wants to see the outside.
I think that if there was a concern I would have needed the MRI imm and he would not have said see you in three months.
Knowing me, I always worry.

Congrats Joey! You have graduated and I am moving this out of the new dx to the invasive section. We all worry even though we know that worrying never changed a thing it must just be part of being human.

Joey,
Since we are on the same schedule, I have been waiting for your post.
I am so happy all was well, the waiting for the cytology always seems so long. You have had so many good reports, I am sure your doctor is just covering all the bases.
I know how you feel, just when I think I have everything under control, emotions etc, and little bump has me worried.
Enjoy the next 6 months, celebrate the great cysto.

Joey,

Congrats on the cysto all clear.

I think you are right about the MRI. If he was concerned, he would have ordered it for right away. It's always good to have periodic scans just to be sure.

Let us know when you get the cytology report. Good luck!

Cynthia, question. Why would this be moved to the invasive section?
