Realdeal, same as Sara Anne, for my first 6 treatments I did not have a follow up cysto for at least 3 months. I remember after that follow up the doctor said with the surgery and the treatments my bladder looked like a war zone.

I haven't had appointments so close to the BCG treatments. Usually, the bladder is inflammed (that is the idea) and needs time to heal before they can tell much. I suppose this is a good time to ask any questions about the BCG treatment.....any problems you had.

Hi guys. In three days, Monday Dec. 3rd. I have my doctors appointment following the 6 BCG treatments. I would appreciate your input in regards to what questions I should be asking the doctor. After the #6 treatment which was 9 days ago, the nurse explained Mondays appointment would be brief and would be about scheduling going back in to see how the treatments worked. She mentioned he may or may not do any biopsies. Also will check out the urine specimen Monday. She said the scheduling would be about 2 weeks after Mondays appointment. Has to do with allowing enough time "after the first" BCG treatment? Fire away whatever questions I should be asking Monday. Very appreciative as always. Louie
