Advice & Tips: Do not have this until you've discussed it with Bladder Cancer Forums; read about it; waited at least a couple of weeks whilst you find out as much as possible about it. Tell the surgeon you only want a biopsy (but then, will s/he take any notice? Mine didn't). I was rushed into this surgery 2 days after having been diagnosed - much too quickly. NO benefits - the cancer regrew to the same size within three months - when chemo then cleared it. So I should have gone straight to chemo.
