I have had a TURBT for bladder cancer which came back as High-grade papillary urothelial carcinoma with focal invasion of lamina propria. In the additional levels, there is also focal squamous differentiation in the surface component. In all that I have read I should be given treatment such as BCG but last week the urologist in a public hospital has said no treatment and we will do another TURBT in three months. I am very concerned as the tumour was over 5cm removed. How do I get a second opinion in the public system. Also I am in a wheelchair due to post polio syndrome. Are there any services that could transport me to hospital in my wheelchair as the maxi taxis are expensive at over $100 each way from where I live to the hospital thank you.
