bladder cancer - recurrence

within the last 2 years i've had bladder tumors removed, then gemcitabine chemo into the bladder (this is still ongoing once a month). then kidney removed due to tumor. now my urologist surgeon saw 1 spot of tumor regrowth in bladder that he says is 'tiny'.

his recommendation is to check it again at my 3 month checkup. he feels it is not necessary to remove at this time, but if there is enlargement or another spot shows up then we would schedule a surgery to remove.

my question is has anyone else faced a similar situation of delaying immediate removal of a  recurrence?
