Mike ((hugs)) I've been away and just had a brief read of your recent post. I hope it will help if I tell you that several years ago I knew a chap who had what sounds like the same type of bladder cancer that you have - he had the same 'up the spout' inspections that you've had - the treatment was done the same way with lasers - he would have a day off work for the treatment and go back to work the next day - he was a builder doing strenuous work. He would have a regular 'inspection' once every 12 months and if anything needed zapping it would be zapped with a laser there and then. He fathered the third of his three children after starting receiving this treatment. He died some 25 years later in his 70s of a severe stroke.
I remember him telling me that the most painful thing of any of the treatment was the injections - the rest he regarded as a day off work I would add that he was an active allotmenteer!!!
I hope that gives you a degree of reassurance - remember we're all 'rooting' for you - rooting, get it??? That's a joke that is ((hugs))
