but do tell Dr. Steinberg what regimen you're on...baby or 325mg or whatever.

Julie,

I don't know the answer to the question about the aspirin, but it certainly something that you should discuss with Dr. Steinberg.

Glad you are 'living again'!!!! Keep that up!

You will be a pro in no time. Sharing your experiences helps so many people that never post. Lots of folks just read and they are helped. So that means, you are already helping people just by posting your questions and feelings. :)

Hello again to my wonderful support and info family. Just read posts from boilermaker Jim this has helped me. THERE IS NO CERTAIN CHOICE!!!!! I made appt with Dr Steinberg this friday have all slides and paperwork this has kept me focused and not so FEARFUL.. Then I will talk to a medical/onocolgist
my urolist and my primary doctor after that (you all said lots of opinions andinfo so I took it to heart) So far 1 for BCG take the chance re check in 3 months. This is the first day I have left the house and feel like I can live again I sure hope this lasts.
QUESTION -I take asprin daily for a previous heart attack and sometimes I show microscopic blood in urine couldnt BCG get in bloodstream???? SCARY!!!!!
I love this group! Grateful for all of you who take the time to read and answer. I hope to be on the other end helping soon...

BCG or Rc so far I am lucky I have options! NO MUCLE INVATION) After sencond TURBT I guess we will know more. I am going to call Dr Steinberg at UNV of Chicago and try and schedule second TURBT with him. (my pathologist for the first TURBTcame from UNV of Chicago) I have been looking into BCG but it is confusing for people with T1/G3 How many of you have had success with this?????

Forgot the link to USC/Norris in LA...you can look up their bio's on this page
http://www.doctorsofusc.com/doctor/bio/browse?specialty=83&location=&language=&doctor
And here's a really great paper on bladder cancer and how USC treats patients.....

So good luck on your decision for a second opinion.
