I was dx with a TCC grade 1 back in 2002 and with miserably botched outpatient surgery, that left me in ICU for a week and in the hospital for a month I was released. I followed up with bcg. In 2004 I had a minor blip on the radar, rather the cysto, that showed a suspicious lesion in 2004. It was surgically removed as an outpatient (Yikes) and mytomycin administered. Whew, this one went a lot better. They assure me that I am back on track for a full recovery. Wait, this gets better. In 2008 I went to my dermo to have tiny black mole examined and whammo, here we go again, it was a melanoma. I was given this news on my answering machine when I got off work. Nice touch I thought, doctors can be so sensitive...............not. Both urologic oncologist and dermotologist have assured me that neither of these is related to the other but I can't help but wonder. Just wonder if anyone else out there had any experience with these two.
Still dodging the ball down here in Georgia.................thanks.
