Hi,I'm off to Bristol tomorrow to find out the histology results.In some ways I feel more apprehensive about this appointment than when I was diagnosed.I had guessed that I had cancer so although it was a shock it wasn't a suprise.I would be interested to hear people's experiences of getting their histology results.Best wishes.Jane XX
After my first scan the lovely ward urology doc said " prepare for the worst and hope for the best" and I've followed his advice. I've had 3 lots of histology results all at different grades. None of them made my heart sing but the amazing range of treatments available for free from the NHS definitely helps! Sending you love with my fingers crossed. H x
I've been there today for my annual scan, and all was functioning as usual. I have my fingers crossed for you.
What if the Hokey Cokey IS what it's all about?
Thanks Herothedog,I follow the same advice.Unfortunately due to having a squamous cell cancer the treatment options are limited.When we met the surgeon my sister asked if I would be cured by cystectomy and he said it depended on tumour spread.I was told back in 2005 when the pre-cancerous changes were found that I would be put under cancer surveillance.My urologist said that they couldn't predict which patients with these changes would get cancer,only that it was a much rarer aggressive type with a tendency to spread.It's taken 14 years for the changes to turn cancerous but I'm coping well without the bladder.In fact I don't miss it at all,it's caused me nothing but pain since my early 20's and I am 59 now.Fingers crossed that the news will be good tomorrow and I can continue improving.Love Jane XX
