  • Hello Harleyman,

    I'm sorry to hear about your lack of sleep as this has an effect on your mood and general wellbeing. Meditation and other relaxation techniques can help you gain the restorative benefits of sleep that you're missing at the moment and you can get more information on our website. Your can also speak to your doctor for their advice.

    Ahead of the operation, you might find it useful to look at the information about TURBT on our website. I hope it goes ok and let us know how you get on.
