What can I do while waiting for 2nd TUR?

Hi there, new to the forum. Just being diagnosed with High Grade T1/2. I am 46 and looks like I was brought down by my bad habits when I was young.  

I had a TUR in early April and the biopsy was not conclusive, so I will need to wait for another month before taking another re-section. The waiting just adds to my anxiety.

bladder cancer at 23yrs old

hi all.

i have not long been diagnosed with bladder cancer but they havnt done any test to prove other then a visual look inside my bladder,

off that visual look they have said that i have a very large tumour, my question is, is there a big enough differnce in the look of a tumour to tell wether they are benign or cancerous?

Kidney Stent - How does Chemo affect it

I have a kidney stent and am now getting regular chemo.  Have experienced a lot of discomfort with the kidney stent, which is replaced every 3 months, but now with chemo, find more irritation.  Has anyone else experienced this?  They tell me that the chemo leaving my body would NOT irritate the ureter but I question this.  Thanks

Bladder Cancer at 85 - Risks

My Mom was diaghosed with T2B Muscle invasive Bladder cancer.  She had a portion of tumor removed before Christmas but it was deep into the muscle.  Went yesterday to surgeon and he did cystoscopy and showed me large tumor stuck to lining into muscle.  We are faced with this:  Mom had Breast cancer 12 years ago and had a VERY rough time with Chemo and is strictly against Chemo and Radiation.  Doc offers this:  Chemo & Radiation then Bladder removal.  5 hr operation and he feels "You should do ok with surgery".  He can also do just the removal, no Chemo but is not keen on that.  Or she c

Potential for Bladder Cancer

As a new member I wanted to understand my potential for bladder cancer. I have had both esophageal and prostate cancers within the last 6 years. I was fortunate to have a stage one esophageal cancer and treatment went well, the prostate cancer was stage three and required removal as well as radiaton and hormonal therapy.
