I didn't post before because this isn't about my breast cancer. I went in for my yearly (well I stretched it to 18 months) cystoscopy for my bladder cancer check up. It is done under light sedation in case they find anything they can remove it then. My bladder cancer was in 2002 and my tests have always been clear. Before I went under the doctor and I discussed going to every 2 years for this test. When I came out of the sedation, hubby told me that the doctor had removed a small tumor but he felt it was benign. They sent it for pathology and he told Den he would call me today and let me know for sure. The good news is that it was benign, the yucky news is that it is the type of tumor that can become malignant and it was in the same spot as my original cancer. Because these often grow back and sometimes very quickly I don't get to go to the every two year place but back to the every four month place. So it is two steps forward and one step back but I am so grateful it wasn't cancer that I don't care. So happy, good news and yucky I have to go more often news (but not bad news). Thanks for letting me share my mostly good news with you all.
