Glad to hear your success with both the Oncovite and BCG treatments. I'm taking 2 Oncovite tabs per day now and begin my 6-wk BCG induction this time next week. Hopefully they'll do the trick for me also. Best of luck and hoping for a good outcome on your cysto next month!
I've been taking Oncovite since June 2015 and have had no adverse side effects. I buy it through Amazon and pay about $25 for a bottle of 100. I take one a day, so a bottle lasts more than 3 months and cost is about $.30 per day.
I don't know if it helps, but it apparently doesn't hurt. I had my first cysto in Dec after my 6 induction BCG treatments and there was no evidence of disease (NED), and the bladder lining looked pretty healthy (I watched). I go back in March for my second cysto and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the lining will still look healthy and there's NED.
Dx 5/28/15 with 4.2cm x 2.2cm Ta HG Papillary TCC; 2nd TURBT 7/09/15, NED; 6 BCG completed 9/30/15; 3 sets of BCG maintenance completed 1/26/17. Six cystoscopes - all NED. Moving to scopes every 6 months, and no more BCG maintenance.
The vitamins can't hurt but, like anything else, moderation I am sure is a word of caution. Don't know if the podcast can be found anymore but, Dr. Denney or Dr. Grossman of MD Anderson handled a Q&A 7-8 years ago when I was early in my journey and the Oncovite question came up and he said they had no evidence that it actually did much for the bladder.
DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.
Is Doug taking the high-dosage (4 per day) or just one per day? The Oncovite bottle says one capsule per day, whereas Dr Lamm recommends taking 4 capsules per day. As Sara Anne indicated, the Oncovite is expensive...$27 for 100 capsules.
