New to all of this- perioperative chemo???

12 years 8 months ago #5678 by McJen
Hello- my boyfriend was just diagnosed with a TCC by cystoscopy, and a TURB is scheduled for this Friday.
It is suspected to be superficial, not yet into the muscle, but will be confirmed during the resection and results from pathology.
I have been reading as much as possible about it and have a question for anyone who migt know- alot of what I've read says that perioperative installation of BCG or MMC has been shown to significantly reduce risk of recurrence.. especially in low-grade tumors..
Is this something that's done routinely now.. or should we be asking about it.. or demanding it when we go for the procedure??? I know that initial/ maintenance BCG/ MMC treatment is suggested depending on grade, etc., but what about the 'perioperative' installation, specifically??
Any help would be appreciated... apologize if I sound ignorant ;)
