As with my last TURBT in Feb. I’m like an anxious child at Christmas time, thinking I might get coal in my stocking. Unlike the first TURBT, I was more concerned with the procedure, this time it is more about what they might find.

First time for anything can be frightening but subsequent times can cause different feelings.

When its all said and done I go back to one of my favorite quotes

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Regards,
Anne

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers for my procedure today.This TURBT was nothing like the last, it almost seemed like a cystoscopy under anesthesia. There was no need for a catheter, no pain at all. Doctor said he got it all, kidneys good, and will get results next week on the biopsy.


Regards,

Anne

Doctor called to say that the pathology report came back, they got all the cancer and it was the same stage and grading as the first one removed. Next week, I have an appointment to review, Lets hope he included muscle in the biopsy, on my way into the operating room I asked him, to make sure it included muscle, based on the article I reviewed last week. Also I will send my slides to John Hopkins, and Moffitt to get a second opinion.

Will keep you all posted..
