Thank you Rosemary,

Of course you were exactly right- It was explained to me that due to the size is the reason for the BCG. I wish you good luck John

Ro,

Yes, let's see if we can come together and exchange ideas; I know I'm missing a few important facts and I don't want to rely on medical mumbo-jumbo to get a clear understanding...


See you in next text,

John,

I hope you don't mind me jumping in here....

"Because of the size >3cm I do have to start a 6wk treatment of BCG-"

The size of the tumor does matter in prognosis and treatment...

John, I just went back and looked at your thread....the deepest biopsy layer was the lamina propria????? Why????

I did read the pathology that says "low malignant potential." If I am reading this correctly, this means that you are NOT T1 but you are Ta. Of course, this is good news,but...

do we need to jump back to your thread and talk a little???

Hello Tate,

I am relatively new to the list; I was diagnosed a few weeks ago and while I did get my Path'y Report; ( Pathology Report-Mixed Emotions on Superficial BC ) I never did get staged and/or graded; I expect to get notice from Johns Hopkins in that regard very soon.

I did want to direct one question to you and that is: In light of your early stage and low grade; why is it that your going for your first BCG Treatment?...is this purely precautionary?...I suspect my stage is t1 and I have a follow-up Cystoscopy in July; I suppose each of our Drs. is aggresive in their own way.

Best Regards,
John S.
