    • Thank you sounds like you.ve been on a journey,isuppose you should be prepared at all times, its like walking on a tighrope never knowing if you.re going to fall .Its a wait and see thxs again
  • Hi 1551, does your husband have a Clinical Nurse Specialist? If so I would phone in and ask them for info immediately. Waiting around agonising is awful, and does nobody any good. At my NHS hospital results from biopsies take about 2 weeks and then go to a multidisciplinary team to discuss before results are passed to patient. But if you have a Nurse Specialist who knows your husband's medical info, they can often pass on biopsy results over the phone. I think administrators can't give out results information. Do you have another clinic appointment booked in?  Sending you and husband best wishes for the results. Hx

    Hi my hubby is 75 in July he is a young 75 and is relatively fit..He is a positive person but Bladder Cancer is relentless until you get all clear,he was having such a good run,the anticipation after every camera but we were doing good .This has come as a hammer blow ..But may be ok ..Wish someone would get in touch ..its waiting worst time ..Thank you

  • Hi 1551,The waiting is horrible.Red patches due to inflammation are very common so fingers crossed it will be that rather than cancer.Sending my best wishes to you both.Jane x
