I'm not so sure that I wouldn't ask for a second opinion. I'm guessing your Doctor knows what he is doing, but if it were me, I would just want to have a second opinion, maybe even a second biopsy, just for peace of mind.
Age - 55
T1 G3 - Tumor free 2 yrs 3 months
Dx January 2006
He did the removal during my cystoscope exam. No anesthesia, he just cut the piece out and zapped it and that was it. He uses tools through the scope. I think I am using the "Turb" definition in the right context... if not sorry for the confusion...
"Transurethral resection is an operation that uses a cystoscope inserted into the bladder through the urethra. The doctor then uses a tool with a small wire loop on the end to remove the cancer or to burn the tumor away with high-energy electricity (fulguration)."
Finally, I could not log on for the last copuple of days, server problems??
The second most recent TURB was done in his office during my "Poke and Peak". It was a single very small "Red Dot", no treatment other then zapping it to cauterize it after cutting it out. My primary tumor was single and small; in fact the doctor said it was so superficial that it was floating on the surface. He didn’t even cut into the bladder it was so superficial. I was VERY lucky but now I am wondering...
Tim - No offense to you but your case is my worst nightmare!!!
