It sounds to me (no medical expert) that you should ask your doctor about additional type(s) of treatment beyond just the surgery. BCG has been found to be very effective for recurrent bladder cancer. I had only recurrence, and that was 2 years after my first tumor, but my urologist recommended BCG. I'm now done with those treatments, and have been tumor-free since 2008. The thing to watch out for is if the recurrent tumors are of a higher stage or grade; if they remain as low grade and non-invasive, continued TURBTs and maybe BCG would seem to be a good plan of action--ask your doctor.

Good luck!

Small TA Grade 1, May-06; recur (2 tiny), same, June-08; TURBTs both times. BCG begun July-08, dosage to 1/3rd May-10, completed treatment December-11. All clear since 2008.

I have been dealing with bladder cancer for 7 years now, and I have only been cancer free for 2 years. So the answer to your question is , yes it does come back. And it is pretty normal from what I've heard on here and my doctor. A 2nd opinion would be a good idea.

Upnorth, your getting the hang of this pretty good, I'm impressed!!!!

Rock,
It maybe back again, but as long as it stays in one place and is non-invasive that is a GOOD thing.

Good for you :) for keeping up with your check ups.

The faster you find the tumors and remove them the better your chances are for survival.

I know you are frustrated but I think you have done very well. And thank God you'r cancer hasn't progressed.

Keep up the good work.
