Yes, 17 years with recurrent T1. I have had around 40 TURBs.

Tumours have been on different spots in the bladder. The last one grew fast in the dome at the top of the bladder.

Up till then they had been persistant little tumours but had been caught before they’d got into the muscle. when this bigger one was diagnosed the recommended course of action was surgery but looking at the statistics, it looked like combined modalities offered about the same survival rates and so I went that way.

Of course it means that we still have every chance of recurrence so will need looking at every 3 months.

Good luck with your treatment. Let me know how you get on.
