Hi Im Bob ima 49 year old man usually very healthy, have to say i did smoke about 30 a day till i was told i have bladder cancer.
I started in mid Feb this year i passes blood in my urine lots i would have to say, i went within a few days to the doc who sent me to see a uroligist did test looked up inside my bladder nothing! so was happy, untill that is i got a call from his office saying that they found abnormal cells in a urine test i did when i had the cysto done.
I then went to see him and he said i have malignant cells in my urine shedding from somewhere! ok i said now what, he then took me into hospital and under ansetic he looking inside again where he said he found a flat area of carsinoma. He then cut/burned this out. after about 8 weeks i went into hospital and had this looked at again only in 2 days was ok
good new is all looks ok no more to cut/burn out, im going to see the uro on june the 3rd next week to see about BCG not sure if i need it but we will see.
I have to say all this is very scarry isnt it haveing never been ill, so if anyone want to chat to me please feel frre to email me ok
Kind Regards Bob
