I went today for my 3 month cysto. The Dr found more tumors that need to be removed. He said they look like the same as I have had before low grade non-invasive. One thing I do like about this Dr is they use a TV screen so I can see inside the bladder. I can see the tumors. Most of them small clusters. I can see some of the scare tissue inside the bladder from previous tumors that were removed. Really an interesting thing to see.
I have had 8 or 9 surgeries to remove the tumors. And the way it keeps going I will continue to have more. I was wondering how well the bladder heals itself? As I stated I saw inside the bladder and can see a couple of spots where there is scar tissue. I wonder how many times can a bladder take having tumors removed. Does the bladder wall become to thin? Or does it heal itself but leaves the scar tissue?
I already know my bladder is not the same as before due to the surgeries. The urgency of needing to go can come on rather quickly, and escalate to a really painful need to go in a matter of minutes. I spoke to one of my Uro's and they said due to the surgeries this was normal.
