This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

Just had a TURBT under general anaesthetic - and it is NOT pleasant having such a big tube containing the various tools stuffed up one's urethra. Consultant says if the nodules were cancer then its a new one on him - he simply doesn't know what he cut out! We have to wait 2-3 weeks for a definite answer following lab analysis. Anyway, apart from taking samples he cut out what was there, tidied up the necrotic bits and cauterised the nodule sites, so I'm a bit tender but getting back to normal. Will update my story in YANA Experiences when I have the lab results and a definite answer on what the nodules were.
