Results from the pathology came back today:
Your bladder biopsy did not show any cancer present.
FINAL PATHOLOGIC DIAGNOSIS:
Bladder, right anterior wall, biopsy:
-urothelial mucosa with chronic inflammation
Bladder, left wall biopsy:
-urothelial mucosa with focal ulceration and inflammation
Bladder, posterior wall, biopsy:
-urothelial mucosa with patchy inflammation
I can only assume the residual inflammation is likely from the BCG treatments. My doctor is out until next week, so I will have some time before we discuss what happens nexts, but as you can imagine, I am very happy with this result. Your support, prayers, and crossed fingers are all greatly appreciated!
I finished 3rd round of BCG+Interferon (6 prescribed) last Friday. So far I tolerated it well. I did have blood and a few tissues from urine on the day and afterward. Generally, life comes back to normal in 2 days.
My wife types all my stuff for me, don't type! Glad that you had good results., and praying the same for your new results. The uncertainty of waiting for the results are exhausting, at least for me. I have my next cystoscopy on 2/26. Praying for good results as well. After the last cysto., I completed 3 treatments of the BCG/Interferon, the beginning of January, and I am finally getting to feel better again, and now it starts all over, but it's better than the alternative. My grand daughter did an interview with me on my journey for her nursing class. I am now all over Facebook!!! There are a couple of scenes that she took from my wife's Youtube, with me clowning around with my catheter in, and I guess it was quite a hit.
Keep in touch and thanks for thinking of me.
Biopsy #3 in the books as of last Thursday. Just waiting for the result now. The second Cytology test from a few weeks back was negative, so I am cautiously optimistic that the result of this biopsy will be good.
I will start my 1st BCG + Interferon tomorrow for 6 rounds. Keep fighting!
