Hi there y'all, i was diagnosed back in 2006, had my first op the day after the world cup final but wasn't treated that good at that particular hospital, in fact it was one of the health care that told me i had cancer, the surgeon and his buddies hadn't even bothered to tell me. When i challenged him about this all he said was 'welcome to the club, you got cancer, next patient' . Could tell some real horror stories about this hospital, and I work for the NHS! Anyway I needed a second op for which the hospital lost all my paperwork etc so went private, explained to the surgeon there that i couldn't afford to keep paying out for check ups BCG etc and he transferred me onto his own list at my local NHS hospital where I have had excellent treatment. Another op and 3 yrs of BCG followed then every 6 months without fail a cystoscopy . Have only praise for the team that cares for me now , dread the 6 monthly checks but know that they are looking after me
