Hi everyone. I had a questions for those of you men who have been through this. As you know my husband was diagnosed with BC in August 08. He has had 1 turb, and two cystos with biopsies, all done at the hospital under anesthesia.
His last tests were clear and now the doctor wants to do a cysto WITHOUT biopsy in the office after his bcg treatments using numbing instead of anesthesia. He says this is fairly routine and generally an office procedure. My husband is totally against this as he is scared "s---tless" of having to do this witout being under.
I would appreciate your input. I can't imagine what this would feel like (being a woman) but I think he should at least try this once. His doctor says he will need many cystos over time and that he does not need to have them in the hospital unless biopsies are done.
Any experience here would be helpful.
