Timing for BCG Treatments

4 years 4 months ago #48837 by Jay
Hello Sara.Anne: You may have remembered me from about 4 months ago. I had my first 6 series of BCG treatments ending on Feb. 23rd. I then had a cystoscopy on March 25th that came back clear.

That was only half of my problem, as stated before I also was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I had a robotic prostatectomy on April 19, pathology came back fully contained, will be getting a PSA test later this week, hopefully showing 0.0. Surgery went well, no problems reconnecting things up!

Now back to the bladder. The tumor was high grade, superficial, didn't get into the muscle. I know I should be on a 3 month BCG treatment for a while? As stated in the 1st paragraph, should I have been starting BCG treatments 3 month from Feb. 23rd or 3 months from March 25th? I know my doctor wanted to give me time to heal from my prostatectomy, but I'm thinking that I shouldn't wait any longer than maybe the beginning of July at the latest, or maybe even June?

AS always, thanks for any advice, Jay
