Yesterday I had my 4th. BCG treatment. They seem to get slightly more uncomfortable with each session. Simply uncomfortable is pretty good compared to what I understand about alternate treatments. The U of Iowa clinic I went to was mostly deserted. Very few cars in the parking ramp of a 5 story building. No one in the waiting room besides me. With Gods help we will all survive this latest crisis together. Thank you all for you encouragement.
As a side note, I wanted to share a story. My brother had bladder cancer 3 years ago. He had to have his bladder removed, and has worn a ostomy bag ever since. I have not told him about my situation. He lives in another state, across the country, and we only see each other every few years. I almost hate to tell him of my success knowing how his own situation worked out. I feel a little guilty I guess. I can't help feeling if he had found the right help, at the right time, his cancer could have been eradicated also. I guess I will wait until my journey is over and done, to be sure of the results and decide then. Maybe it's best if he never knows. Anyway. Thanks for letting me talk. Greg

As I mentioned earlier, University of Iowa is a dedicated National Cancer Institute. Seems I have even lore than that going for me. My Dr. just happens to be Dr. Michael O'Donnell.
Wow, nice connection you have there
