Hi Guy's

It's time for a detailed update.  :-)

I woke at 05:30 and set of for the Hospital at 06:15.   By 07:20 I was on the ward and soon the Spanish Inquisition started,   Name, DoB (I am now certain I know those off by heart :-)   When did you last eat, Allergies,  Metal implants, Crowns and loose teeth and any Jewellery type questions from Admissions Nurse, Registrar and Anethasist,  Then the Consultant turned up asking what procedure I was expecting him to carry out.  "Cystoscopy and Biopsy again".
The Registar asked if there were any questions I had.  "Yes, Can I go to Spa for the next round of the WEC?"  I asked.  Yes as long as you feel up to it was the answer.  (Right answer!! :-)
The admission Nurse tagged me with a wristband just like they do at some Circuits or Drinking for Holland.   I was told i didn't need to change yet you're not going down till mid morning.  Then a few seconds later a the nurse arrived to say get changed now  you going to theatre now.  Here's your Breakfast two paracetamol.  (She didn't really but when you haven't eaten since the previous evening that's what you think to yourself.  :-)  I set off for the Operating Theatre a quick glance at the clock and it was nearly 08:00.

So in to the Theatre,  Name Date of Birth and so on yet again.   After that the conversation turned to my interests and hobbies.  My first thought was there is not time for me to tell you all about Sports Car Racing and the WEC.  So I kept it at the small talk level.  It turned out they were just passing time while they completed tests on the equipment before things got under way for the day.   Then he said OK you'll start to feel a bit drowsy now.  That was it!  The next thing I knew I was waking up in the Recovery room.   A nice cup of Tea and a couple of glasses  of water.  Then back to the Ward by 09:15.  All that was left was to pass water a couple of times and see the Registrar before being discharged.  Then the wait  a couple of weeks  for the Biopsy results.    Another cup of tea and a couple of packets of Biscuits.  Felt like a feast I was famished.   More Water.   After I'd passed water a couple times the nurse gave me a Pregnancy Ultrasound Scan and was able to confirmed I was not pregnant so that was a pass.  :-)

Not too much of a wait and the Consultant poked his head though the curtain and said "Nothing to do!  Just go on with the BCG!"  it turns out the camera use for the procedure is a higher resolution so he could see there was no return of the Cancer.  So no Biopsy. 
"Great,  Thank you.  I tell everyone the good news! "  I said.    "Have one for me" were his parting words.   :-)

Back home for lunch.

Great Day!  I feel great.  It's so good to know they are still kicking Cancers Arse!!!!

I feel so fortunate to be able to tell how well I'm doing.   

So guys if you piss blood go down the Doctors and get checked out without delay.

Tom,

That's bloody marvellous news to hear!  Really pleased for you, although I observe that pregnancy confirmation would have given you significant pub bragging rights.....

Hi,

I didn't realise it have been so long since I posted an update to my progress.    There has been anything eventful to report really.

Today I received my last BCG treatment.  It's taken a bit longer than the 3 years in the initial plan. 

There is still no sign of the Tumour returning.  I will be having a CT scan in the next few weeks and then regular follow up cystoscopies for many years to come.

Hopefully they will all show no sign of the Tumour returning.  Fingers crossed!
