Should I Continue Colchicine To Avoid Lesions Developing In My Urinary Bladder?

I am a known case of localised Amyloidosis of Urinary Bladder. To take care of recurrent Haematuria on account of Amyloidosis, I am taking tablet Colchicine 2 nos. per week. Docotrs advise me to stop further. But if I do so, lessions develop in my Urinary Bladder which require surgery. Now my questions is -

Should I continue to take Tab Colchicine, if so, howmuch dosages ?

Regards,

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
You have amyloidosis in urinary bladder. If doctor advised to stop colchicine then you should not continue that drug. Colchicine has many side effects and it should not be taken without prescription. If required go for surgery accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
