Tumor larger than expected..

My husband underwent TURB surgery 1/27 for a tumor diagnosed thru CT.  Surgeon told us tumor was much larger than anticipated, but thought he got it all except for some "spokes" or "satellite" areas.  Said we would have to wait for pathology to know next step. He had been very upbeat prior to surgery, not so much after surgery.  Has anyone had a tumor removed with "spokes" – Dr.  described as strands growing along bladder wall from bigger than expected tumor –  that was still superficial cancer?  We now have another week of waiting for stage and grade pathology, but the spoke and satillite areas make me think invasive…Husband stoic, me scared.  Thanks.  Bless you all.
