Hi all

After my initial Turbt I was told I would have 6 weeks of chemo with Mitomycin-c ( finished about 6 weeks ago) and a cystoscopy under General anaesthetic about 3 months after the course. I have been informed the date for my cystoscopy which is very helpful but it will be just under local aka flexible  (?). I was a bit surprised at this ? I'm a bit concerned that if (as is likely) they see some reoccurrence that biopsies may not be as comprehensive as those done via rigid cytoscopy.  Any experience out there please.
